The Robert B. and Metta. J. Silliman Library, through its American Studies Resource Center (ASRC), has been granted access to 20 online databases of e-journals and e-books on various subjects by the United States Embassy.
Students, faculty and researchers can avail of these resources for free at the ASRC on the ground floor of the Library. The topics range from environment, science and technology, business research to English language, a press release from Silliman University said.
This development increases the number of online databases at the Library, including a free subscription to the Philippine e-lib granted earlier by the Commission on Higher Education, and two e-books purchased by the Ontario Silliman University Alumni Association.
Meanwhile, Silliman is also this year’s recipient of The Nippon Foundation book program, “100 Books for Understanding Contemporary Japan.” This was announced through a communication from the International Program Department of The Nippon Foundation to University Librarian Mrs. Lorna Yso.
