Report on typhoon in Philippines

I contacted Stephen Alayon from SEAFDEC/AQD via email to see how he and his library fared in the recent typhoon that swept through the Philippines.  Many of you met Stephen at this year’s IAMSLIC conference in Florida.

I am happy to report that he along with his family and library staff are all OK, and his library was not damaged.

German Libraries ‘Anthem’

Here is the link to the German Libraries ‘Anthem’:

I tried to do some translation into English (without any guarantee)…

Have fun!!

Library’s anthem

If you as a human being are standing at the window

And you are centering on yourself again

Go out, go your way

Go into the Library

 

Chorus:

Book food, new land

Library and expertise

Book food, new land

Library and expertise

 

Break:

Thinking, counter, databases, classroom, library ticket, ebooks

Silence, text book, systematics, truth, curiosity, chairs

 

If we lose or win

If we are thinking all alone or all together

For education and future

Library, meeting place

 

Chorus:

Book food, new land

Library and expertise

Book food, new land

Library and expertise

 

Break:

Displays, chances, library busses, tables,

Self checkout,

Books, opacs, entertainment, long time preservation

 

Digitized object, digitized object, digitized object, digitized objects

Online catalogue, online catalogue, online catalogue, online catalogues

 

Chorus:

Book food, new land

Library and expertise

Book food, new land

Library and expertise
