Prof. Yapo to launch “Artfully Speaking & other essays”

Prof. Yapo to launch “Artfully Speaking & other essays”

The Office of the Chancellor, in collaboration with the University Library, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, is honored and delighted to host the launching of the book “Artfully Speaking & other essays” by Prof. Jerry R. Yapo.

With the definition of what is a good work of art, Prof. Yapo may have ended the debate on an even more basic problem — what is art?
Read the carrier essay “Artfully Speaking” in Prof. Yapo’s best-selling book, now on its second printing after it was officially launched last October 1, 2022.
All UPLB constituents are invited to this Book Launch on October 24, 2022, at 4:00 PM, Main Library Lobby.

“Text&Image,” a group art exhibit featuring the author’s artist friends, is the book’s companion activity.

The exhibit will run from Oct 24-Nov 24, 2022. See you there!

“Unstable oil prices, on top of new studies pointing to how our daily commute harms the planet through greenhouse gases, are prompting us to rethink how we travel. We take a look at the future of commuting including the implementation of electric and other carbon-neutral vehicles, new personal mobility vehicles moving people from point A to B, and how mass public transport could be the key to a greener road.”

Library Amnesty Program

Library Amnesty Program


In celebration of the 100th Founding Anniversary of UP Libraries, the University Library will be having a Library Amnesty Program (OPVAA Memorandum No. 2022-50). This program will enable the UP Libraries to recall and recover overdue and unreturned library books, and reinstate the borrowing privilege of library users who have accumulated fines for materials borrowed from the library.

We welcome library users with long overdue materials. Hassle-free Library Return Chutes are available at your convenience at the Main Library and college/ unit libraries. 

For further inquiries, feel free to reach us at genre[email protected] and/or [email protected]
