DEFINING PHILIPPINE LIBRARIANSHIP

Kathleen Lourdes B. Obille, Iyra S. Buenrostro

Abstract


The paper argues that the definition of Philippine librarians and Philippine librarianship is artificial if these are based solely on Republic Act 9246 and other similar legislative literature. It attempts to naturally define these concepts using the method of division by comparing and differentiating it with similar concepts. It also explores the differences in the meaning of Philippine Librarianship if the silent prepositions in or of are pronounced.
