Online MAHLAP Union List Training for Contributing Libraries

Dear Colleagues:
The Medical and Health Librarians Association of the Philippines (MAHLAP) in cooperation with the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) will be holding two training sessions for updating the Online MAHLAP Union List of Medical and Health Periodicals for participating libraries.
The first training session will be held on August 26, 2011, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM at the Information Management Service Training Room, Department of Health, San Lazaro Compound, Sta. Cruz, Manila. The number of participants for the first batch shall be limited to 30 and on a first come first serve basis. This batch is specifically intended for librarians in the NCR and Luzon.
The Online Union List is a cooperative and collaborative product of the MAHLAP and PCHRD that was launch in August 2004. This project started in the early nineties when MAHLAP felt the need to cooperate and share/exchange information materials not available in their own libraries.  The purpose of this compilation is to provide a tool and a ready reference to help librarians, researchers and students in quickly finding a direct route on the available periodicals on medical and health sciences in the Philippines, along side with the established sources.

We believe that the Online Union List is an essential tool which facilitates access to medical and health literature sources thus, it is important to keep it updated.

The second training session is scheduled to be held in February or March 2012 and is specifically intended for librarians in the in Visayas and Mindanao.

This training is FREE.

We will accommodate only one representative per library. Interested participants should contact any of the officers or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We look forward to seeing you at the training.

Very truly yours,
