Abstract

Licensed librarians in the Philippines require 45 credit units to ensure that their licenses get renewed for a period of three years. With the recent enactment of the Philippine Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Act of 2016, how equipped are the medical and health librarians in gaining formal, informal, nonformal and lifelong learning activities to qualify for the prescribed number of points prior to the renewal of their professional license? This study will provide a trend analysis on the types of programs that each medical or health librarian attend or engage into. This paper will compare the activities of the librarians with regards to the established matrix of activities that each professional librarian would need to achieve prior to their license renewal.
