Cebu Doctors' University Main Library

 

The CDU Main Library is maintained to support the instructional, informational and recreational reading needs of the academic community. A wide range of materials, equipment and services are made available to support and enrich the different programs offered in the university.

An Internet Room with more than a hundred workstations is also available for students to explore the world of information superhighway. Several new facilities like Discussion Rooms, Chat Rooms (where students can make or answer calls), and Laptop-charging Area are also in place to make the Library more conducive to learning.

A very recent addition is the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) or the computerized catalog, which allows students quick and easy retrieval of information. For further questions or comments or need for assistance, library users are encouraged to approach the librarians or any staff member.

History

A vital facility of a learning institution is the library, a repository of knowledge and reference of learning. How the library evolved into what it is now can be traced to the following events:

The Cebu Doctors’ College of Nursing was opened in 1973 under the deanship of Dean Filomena C. Flores. Its Library was situated on the 5th floor of the present hospital building. This was manned by a Librarian in the person of Miss Elizabeth Muñez (nee Cagalawan). Subsequently, the College of Arts and Sciences was opened in 1976 with a separate library located on the fifth floor of the Dentistry Building. This Library was under the supervision of Miss Choly Jumapao and later by Miss Emma Modequillo. In 1977, the College of Medicine also put up its own Library on the fourth floor of the CDH building.

In 1983-1987 Mrs. Virginia R. Ablanque served as the Head of the Library of the College of Arts & Sciences. The necessity to consolidate and centralize all reading materials and references for students, faculty and staff was acutely felt in the CDC academic community with its growth in later years, more so with the addition of allied medical disciplines and more departments.
