ILO-De La Salle University (DLSU) knowledge corner partnership

On 31 January 2011, Mr Lawrence Jeff Johnson, CO-Manila Director, Br. Ricardo Laguda FSC, DLSU Chancellor, and Ms Ana Maria Fresnido, University Library Director formally signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on the ILO-DSLU knowledge corner partnership.

Following the establishment of a partnership with the UPSOLAIR in 2009, the De La Salle University (DLSU) have approached the ILO to set-up similar ILO Knowledge Corner to make ILO publications, reports, statistics, and other work-related information materials available in their own institution.

The ILO-DLSU Knowledge Corner partnership was formally launched after signing the MOA. The Knowledge Corner will be designated in the main libraries of DLSU and the Makati Extension campus.

With this initiative, labour information networking will systematize, regularize, and institutionalize information exchange and sharing. Director Lawrence Jeff Johnson stress that access to proper information, the youth and policy-makers can ask questions and direct attention to more pressing concerns regarding labour and poverty.

Chancellor Br. Ricardo Laguda FSC lauded this initiative, saying that this partnership is supported by the University’s goal of helping alleviate poverty through education.
