About the Library
The UPLB University Library is pleased to announce that SAGE Journals Access Trial is now available online at http://online.sagepub.com/
SAGE Journals is an online delivery platform that allows subscribing institutions to access individual SAGE journal titles. The platform hosts prestigious and highly cited SAGE journals and represents one of the largest lists in the social sciences as well as an extensive STM offering.
SAGE Journals contains the full content of each issue of the journal, including all figures and tables. In addition, the full text is searchable by keyword, and the cited references include hyperlinks to Medline and to the full text of many other online journals.
The journal's homepage also provides access to information about the journal (such as Instructions to Authors, the Editorial Board, and subscription information and on-line subscription ordering), as well as access to other services.
Our trial access is on campus-based only.

Forseeing the need to maintain and preserve the University Publications, and to make these materials accessible and available even for years to come, The University Library, under the leadership of Ms. Concepcion DL. Saul came up with a project called "University Knowledge Digital Repository", which is currently under initial stage of its implementation.
The project aims to develop a comprehensive collection and database of the University generated knowledge, which includes special materials, researches, and other publications of the University. Another goal of this project is to preserve these materials through digitization and make it available online with the University Special Collection Section (USpCS) of the Main Library as the main responsible in collecting, organizing and preserving these information sources.
In support with this project, Chancellor Rex Victor O. Cruz recently issued Memorandum No. 023, Series of 2014, designating USpCS as the University Knowledge Repository Center effective February 12, 2014. Excerpt from the Memorandum states that:
"All UPLB constituents shall submit both published and unpublished information sources to the USpCS, either in print, multimedia or electronic form, written by the University faculty, researchers and staff, and or published by, and about the University, but not limited to the following type of publications..."
With the circulation of the directive, full support from the Colleges, Institutions, and Departments and Offices of the University is expected by providing the Center with the outputs of the faculty, researchers and staff. And the end result, a database of knowledge generated in the University that can provide reliable information for teaching, research, extension and other purposes. A legacy of the University as well as its constituents that will serve even the next generations. (N.G. Ramos)
