More Books for Bukidnon State University – Talakag Campus

Three years ago, I made a personal commitment to help put up a library for Bukidnon State University – Talakag Campus in order to provide learning resources to our local college students. I also wrote an article in the Mindanao Blog about my “Library Project for Talakag”. I am pleased to report that the library has now got a fair selection of books available to both students and lecturers.

Again, thanks to my colleagues at Durham University Business School and personal friends back in the UK for donating more books. Photo below shows the handover of the latest consignment of books to Mr Carlos Canlas, a lecturer representing BSU. Degree courses being offered in Talakag are Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Bachelor of Science in Education.
