PETITION
URGENTLY REQUESTING TO HAVE THE UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES
MAIN LIBRARY OPENED 24 HOURS A DAY FROM MONDAY TO SATURDAY

Diliman, Quezon City

Dear Ms. Arlante:

We, the concerned students and professors of the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, committed to pursuing academic excellence and in advancing the interests and welfare of the UP studentry, are submitting to you this petition urgently requesting before your office, to have the University of the Philippines Main Library opened 24 hours a day from Monday to Saturday. We also propose that access to library resources be extended from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm to 7:00 am to 10:00 pm.We are making this request for the following reasons:

1. Eight (8) out of 10 graduate students are working and are not able to access library resources during its present library hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Graduate seminar courses require tremendous library use. As such, there is a need to provide more time to assist the students in conducting research, to allow them to borrow and return books, journals, and other related materials, and to provide them access to online library resources;

2. Other state and national universities in neighboring countries as well as in other countries around the world have already instituted significant reform measures (i.e., making their libraries availably 24 hours daily) to provide students greater access to their library resources; and

3. Undergraduate and graduate students in UP Diliman stand to benefit greatly from the consideration of this request since they will now have greater access to library resources and concomitantly greater opportunities to pursue academic excellence.

Finally, we suggest that the UP Main Library be devoted as a reading/access library after 10:00 pm, so that no books or journals are borrowed from 10:00 pm to 7:00 am.

Towards the pursuit of academic excellence and the welfare of the students and academe of the University of the Philippines, we fervently hope that you will consider and favorably respond to this request.
