The Philippine eLib Implementing the eLib, we in the Philippines realized two concerns: • Acquisition of most, if not all, Filipiniana cultural heritage materials in any format • Preservation and conservation of these heritage materials/traditional knowledge • Increased readership that includes not only clients of the members of the consortium but also ordinary people, farmers, fisher folk and students in both public and private secondary and tertiary levels of education. • We would like to think, that through the University Library’s website and the Phil eLib, we continue to contribute to the social and economic empowerment of our people. Conclusion • It is imperative to preserve heritage materials/ information resources covering culture and the historical events in our respective nations and use modern information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the organization, access and preservation of national heritage materials in realizing the national vision for social and economic empowerment of its constituents.
