    a) provide an overview on gamebased tools in educating library users; b) introduce and demonstrate practical applications of gamification in enhancing

    librarys information services; and c) propose strategies and approaches in the integration of gamification to library

    services. Registration starts at 12:00 noon. Registration fees are at Php300 for members, Php350 for nonmembers and Php200 for students to cover for light snacks and certificate. You may also renew and apply for membership during the forum. Fees are at Php200 for individual and Php500 for institutional members.
