The much awaited 4th edition of Follett Comprehensive Training Course was finally held last August 19-22, 2008 at Cebu Doctors’ University (CDU), Mandaue City, Cebu. The four-day training course drew twenty six (26) participants nationwide with this year’s theme: “Sustaining the Needs of Filipino Librarians for Proper Library Management with the use of Follett CirCat system”.
As trainer of this event, Ms. Sonia Gementiza, Library Director of DLSU-Dasmarinas, shared her knowledge and experiences to give the participants in-depth knowledge of the Follett library automation software. Moreover, our software specialist, Mr Pedro Tabinas, gave the participants additional information on the technical management of the software. Our Follett customers were able to interact and learn from each other’s experiences with library automation during this four-day training. It was a fruitful event for the participants as they gain inputs on the proper library management using Follett Circat system.
Thank you Dr. Enrico B. Gruet, CDU VP for Academic Affairs, Ms. Emeline Baco, Chief Librarian, and all CDU Librarians and staff for allowing us to hold the course in your university and helping us get it done!

It was indeed an effective training of Follett. We had learned so many things with regard to the different modules. We were given a chance to asked questions, and the speakers accommodate all our queries. More power Follett! – Participant
