Abstract

The Bachelor of Library and Information Science (BLIS) program of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) is a four-year program that prepares students to develop, deploy and manage information resources in print, nonprint, electronic, and digital formats. It trains students to apply information technology to basic library operations and functions; to systematically organize, conserve, and preserve information objects, historical and cultural documents, and other intellectual properties; and to harness bibliographical and online tools to support teaching, research, and other services. The program is fortunate to have made significant leaps in the last 12 years. But as new challenges arrive, it commits itself to continuous quality improvement. The program will strive to remain at par with local and international standards. It shall continue supporting the strategic directions and advocacies of the University and produce world-class competent, committed, and compassionate information professionals who make significant contributions to society.
