EISI’s first back-to-back event held in Davao late 2010 drew a good number of attendees not only from Mindanao but even as far as Luzon.  The two events highlighted the maturity of the Windows-based Follett Cir/Cat platform, and the game-changing web-based Follett Destiny Resource Management Solution for library automation, textbook management, asset and media management. The 5th Cir/Cat Comprehensive Training Course was held from October 19 to the morning of October 22, 2010 at Brokenshire College, with 17 in attendance.  Ms. Sonia Gementiza of DLSU-Dasmarinas was again the main lecturer, assisted by Pedro Tabinas and Dada Flores of EISI.  The Destiny Southern Philippine Launch was held on the afternoon of Oct 22 at the Grand Men Seng Hotel with 72 attendees.
