Abstract

The paper presents the establishment of the BLIS program of the Leyte Normal University (LNU). Through Board Resolution No. 022, series of 2009, the LNU Board of Regents approved the opening of BLIS Program at the Leyte Normal University under the administration of Dr. Evelyn C. Cruzada. The pioneering batch of BLIS graduates were conferred with their degrees in March 2013 and took the Librarian Licensure Examination (LLE) in November 2013. In December 2020, the last batch of students under the old curriculum, prescribed by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) through CHED Memorandum Order (CMO) no. 8, series of 2005, finished their degrees. At present, the BLIS program has already produced 180 graduates with 119 licensed professional librarians who are employed in various public and private schools.
