8th LIS Refresher Program (2023)

Library-Bayanihan (formerly Libraryanihan), in partnership with the University of the Philippines School of Library and Information Studies, is offering the 8th LIS Refresher Program this 2023. The LIS Refresher Program is designed for fresh graduates of library and information science programs (e.g., BLIS, MLIS) who wish to strengthen and update their knowledge in preparation for entering the library and information profession. Practicing librarians, archivists, and other information professionals are also welcome to join the program.

The program features leading professors and practitioners in the field, covering the following topics:

●     Cataloging, Classification, Abstracting, and Indexing: Foundations and New Standards

●     Building and Managing Collections for Libraries

●     Providing Reference and Information Services

●     Managing Libraries: Theory and Practice

●     Utilizing Information Technology in Libraries

●     Archives and Records Management: Theory and Practice


Only online formats of the LIS Refresher Program will be offered for this year. The program comes in two formats, as follows:

All formats include various course materials, lecture notes, and learning assessment tools which are accessible via our learning management system. Learning resources can be accessed starting June 11, 2022 until September 30, 2023.

Due to the limited number of participants that can be accommodated in a videoconference session, the extensive format of the LIS Refresher Program can only accommodate a limited number of participants. Participants may secure their slots upon full payment of the registration fee.
