GENERAL SANTOS CITY (MindaNews/ 4 October) — The city government is pushing for the establishment of electronic libraries or e-Library in all public elementary and secondary schools here in a bid to provide students and even teachers with wider access to various educational references and related learning materials.

Percival Pasuelo, executive assistant for information technology of the city mayor's office, said they have launched the "e-Library for public schools" project to assist local public schools in developing their own e-Libraries and eventually adopt them as part of their regular learning systems.

"This is part of our efforts to enhance the learning systems in local public schools through information and communication technology," he said.

Pasuelo, who heads the city government's enhanced SHEEP-Computer Literacy Program (CLP), said the e-Libraries will be put up in all public schools that have operational speech-computer laboratories that were provided by the local government.
