JBLCF-Bacolod clinches 2021-2022 with two more national and international paper presentations

Two more paper presentations from JBLCF-Bacolod made it to the national and international levels for the school year 2021-2022. These are the papers authored by Mrs. Irene C. Mamon, a faculty member of the College of Maritime Education, and Dr. Elisa V. Garcia, Chief Librarian of JBLCF-Bacolod.

Mrs. Mamon’s paper entitled “Note-Taking Behaviors of Top-Performing Junior High School Students” was presented at the 7th International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research held on March 24-26, 2022, via Zoom. This qualitative study descr ibes the students’ practices and experiences in note-taking, which can provide information that can aid the administrators, teachers, and students in organizing classroom activities to promote productivity and self-regulated learning. In her paper, she writes, “I have envisioned myself championing and empowering my students in facilitating their own learning.  With many studies such as this, I hope everyone gets to appreciate the efforts of the teachers in putting things in order, in trusting that students perform their initiatives in participating in the processes of learning.”


The second paper, entitled “Information and Communication Technology Capability, Service Quality, and Client Satisfaction of Libraries in the Online Distance Learning during Pandemic,” was presented by Dr. Elisa V. Garcia, Chief Librarian of JBLCF-Bacolod, at the 29th PSERE Annual Conference held on May 19-20, 2022, also via Zoom. Dr. Garcia’s paper aims to determine the ICT capability, service quality, and client satisfaction of selected libraries of HEIs in Negros Occidental during the school year 2020-2021 as the foundation for the proposed enhancement program to improve the ICT capability, service quality, and client satisfaction. The paper proposes redesigning the libraries’ daily operation by integrating technology in its processes, acquiring recent and updated books, subscribing to electronic databases and e-books, building digital libraries with access to open access educational resources, and capability training of the library staff on automation and content management systems to automate the libraries and develop their digital libraries/repositories.
