Students, members of the academe, and government employees witnessed the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the local government of Tarlac and DOST?s information arm, the Science and Technology Information Institute (STII) to signal Starbooks? debut appearance in Tarlac last February at the Bulawagang Tarlac in Tarlac City. The MOU was signed by Tarlac Governor Victor Yap and STII?s chief of finance and administrative division Arlene Centeno, representing STII director Raymund E. Liboro. Tarlac National High School and Carlos P. Romulo Library are the first beneficiaries of Starbook in the province. Previously, 143 Starbooks kiosks were already installed in various provinces in the country including schools in Davao and the Cordillera region. To orient its beneficiary institutions on the proper use and operation of Starbooks, STII conducted a seminar and workshop last February 27 at the same venue. ]]>
