The Philippine Association of Academic and Research Librarians (PAARL) grants annual Awards to promote academic and research librarianship, and specifically, to confer acknowledgement of not only work well done, but as well as to give recognition of a person’s merit and a special, deserved place within the library profession, and to cite the special achievements of the academic and/or research libraries.
The Awards Ceremony immediately takes place after the induction of the new Executive Board and its Officers for the incoming year. This year, the Induction Ceremony of the 2018 Board and Officers was held at Bulwagan ng Dangal at Gonzalez Hall of the University Library of UP Diliman on January 26, and immediately thereafter, the Committee on Awards led by Ms. Sharon Ma. Esposo-Betan, presented the 2017 awardees.
Sandra Lyn Q. Quinones, Director of Libraries of Southern Christian College is the recipient of the 2017 Academic Librarian of the Year Award for Mindanao. She received the award during the awarding ceremony of PAARL held at the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines last January 26, 2018. She was accompanied by her supportive husband, Mr. Arfel Quiñones.
