To improve the delivery of quality education


To improve the delivery of quality education, the Department of Science and Technology Region 02’s Science and Technology Academic Research Based Openly Operated Kiosks (STARBOOKS), conducted STARBOOKS review and assessment activity with the technology brainchild DOST-Science and Technology Information Institute (DOST-STII) and school superintendents and personnel from the Department of Education Region 02 on February 20, 2020 at DOST-RO2 Conference Room, Tuguegarao City.

DOST RO2 Director Engr. Sancho A. Mabborang conferred with the STATBOOKS stakeholders the concerns about the implementation of the project and listened to them as they shared their feedbacks of its utilization.

On the other hand, ARD for Technical Operations Dr. Teresita A. Tabaog recommended to widen the coordination with other potential STARBOOKS stakeholders in order to sustain and extend its service by aiding students through the digitized S&T materials.

Pleased and satisfied with the accomplishment of STARBOOKS in Region 02, Chief for Research and Analyst Division Alan C. Taule related the humble beginnings of the STARBOOKS which primarily started by the massive digitization drive in 2011 where their library resources were scanned for easy access.

Through time, STII thought of maximizing the digitization of S&T materials not just for their consumption but for the benefit of the students especially those who are situated in far-flung areas by putting their library in a box, hence, the STARBOOKS was born.

Meanwhile, focal person for STARBOOKS SRS I Napoleon Medin Jester Babaran presented the 2019 accomplishment of the project.
