by Geraldine G. Dumallig / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – School children of Kalinga are now given free access to an electronic library with the launching of the program in the province recently in partnership with the Kalinga State University by the Rotary Club of Tabuk.

Rotary Club of Tabuk president May Josefa Buslig said 72 schools in Kalinga were given an account number and a password so they can access the website.

Rotary International 3770 district governor Benigno Ramirez said through the website, the Rotary hopes to adopt a school library, but instead of donating books, they are giving out information by electronics means where books and other research materials could be accessed.

As learning methods evolved, from the preservation of information on cave walls to the printing of books and now through electronic means, education and learning methods are continuously enhanced, Ramirez said.

With the introduction of the Internet, the learning systems of a library is also upgraded and the means of access was improved since multiple Web users could already read information found in a single book in one sitting, compared with a printed book where only one can use it.

For schools without Internet access, Ramirez said the Rotary is also giving out offline copies to be saved in their database.

He said this only need to be upgraded regularly to access more books from the e-library website.
