There’s a new, faster way of searching through the University Library’s collection of materials with “Tuklas,” a web-scale discovery service that can search across the print and electronic resources of an entire library in real time.

A fundraising project was launched on Jun. 15 to benefit communities near the UP College of Fine Arts (CFA).

Dubbed as “#TulongSining,” the project is an initiative of Sining Fine Art (ASFA), an affiliate organization of the university-wide cultural national-democratic mass organization Alay Sining.

Through #TulongSining, ASFA artist members will accept commissioned works except requests that are considered NSFW (not safe for work) or hate speech.  The participating artists’ portfolios can be viewed at the ASFA’s Facebook page.

The Lesson Study Program of the UP NISMED is instrumental in creating opportunities for Filipino teachers to acquire knowledge and develop capabilities in science and mathematics teaching.
