Reference and Information Services


This section is located on the ground floor of the New Rizal Library. Students, faculty, and researchers who are looking for material that cannot be found in the Rizal Library or just want to have a bird’s eye view of their research are welcome to go to this section. It houses the reference books (dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, almanacs, yearbooks, etc.) that are accessible to all.

This section also aims to assist and equip library users in navigating the library’s sections and maximizing its resources. Aside from providing technical support for online database access, this section also conducts library orientation and maintains connections with Ateneans through various online media (Facebook, Twitter, Email, and Chat). It also contacts similar institutions offering information services and endorses Ateneans who want to visit these institutions.
