  • History

    The setting up of the UP College of Science Institute Libraries was initially envisioned by Dr. Caesar Saloma in 2007, during the start of his 3-year tenure as CS Dean which was coterminous with then CSLIB Head Librarian, Mrs. Jocelyn Razal.  In April 2011, the actual setup of the Institute Libraries happened during the term of the current CSLIB Head Librarian, Mrs. Marie Antoinette Villaflor. Concurrently, it was during this time that most of the new buildings of CS Institutes were finally built in the National Science Complex; thus, spaces were provided for the Institute Libraries.  The initial phase in the establishment of the institute libraries was supervised by Mrs. Susannah V. Deasis until 2013.  Currently, Ms. Fraymon Joy P. Cruz is assisting the Head Librarian in supervising and improving the physical and digital learning spaces of the nine (9) Institute Libraries to support the College in its basic functions of instruction, research and extension services.

    Here is the current list of the CS Institute Libraries:

    1. April 2011 – National Institute of Physics (NIP) Library
    2. April 2012 – Institute of Mathematics (IM) Library
    3. June 2012 – Institute of Chemistry (IC) Library
