Filipino Librarian of the Month: Neriza Delos Santos-Oraba (2 of 2)

Here is part 2 of the interview of Ms. Neriza Delos Santos-Oraba on the INELI-ASEAN Children's Literature Database Project.

What support does it need from Filipino librarians and allied professionals?

For the resources and contents to continuously grow, we need contributors such as authors, aspiring authors, institutions and publishers to supply the contents (published or unpublished children's literature) and content managers such as public librarians to manage/update existing content, collect & create new contents, and promote the use of the database to their library patrons and other stakeholders.

What has been the project’s notable accomplishment so far?

The project was able to compile children's literature e-resources. Contents are supplied with bibliographic information of the e-book, others have links to free download or online access, and location (address or Googlemaps location) of the nearest public library where the printed books are available and can be borrowed.

With the project, the team was awarded Best in Collaboration because it involved libraries and institutions in the region to resolve a common problem and to optimize results.


Although a new team leader was chosen, Kolap never really left the team because she's always there to offer her help and guidance. Because of her and her brother Bora, the ACL database was born. She promised she will continue the project with the team. Aside from the team's mentor Ms. Rashidah, Kolap was there to guide on how to lead the team. She supported Libranovators  throughout the project.
