Keywords:Visual Literacy, Filipino Librarians, Philippine Libraries, Teaching
The paper presents visual literacy and its potential applications in librarianship practice. It provides definitions of visual literacy and its importance in contemporary living and enumerates requisite visual literacy skills and how such skills may be developed in individuals. It presents prospects on how Filipino librarians can integrate visual literacy and visual literacy instruction in librarianship and suggests six areas where visual literacy can be integrated into library services: organization, signage, display, communication, critical thinking, and reading comprehension. With this, learners can develop their visual literacy skills and better understand the conveyed messages.
