Next to Bilyson Alejo’s ranking top one in the 2013 Librarian Licensure Examination and the 100 percent passing rate of USL in the same board exam, the Bachelor in Library and Information Science (BLIS) program of the University has another great achievement.

Danoleene Marie P. Tugade (BLIS-3) and Charmaine C. Masuli (BLIS-4) were hailed champion in the 22nd Library and Information Science (LIS) Wizard held at the University of the Philippines (Diliman) on November 29, 2013.

The University of Santo Tomas (UST) and Saint Mary’s University (SMU) came in second and third, respectively.

The LIS Wizard is the Philippine Association of Teachers of Library and Information Science’s participation in the celebration of the National Book Week in the Philippines.  It is an annual quiz bee aimed at promoting camaraderie, network, and academic excellence among library and information science schools in the country.

Nine (9) LIS schools joined in the competition, namely: Baliuag University, Bulacan State University, National Teachers’ College, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Saint Mary’s University, University of Saint Louis, University of Santo Tomas, University of the East, and University of the Philippines.

Questions in the competition dwelled on subjects like Cataloguing and Classification, Information Sources and Services, Information Technology, Indexing and Abstracting, Library Management and Laws, and General Information.

The USL wizards were coached by Mrs. Venus I. Guyos.
