Now students will find on-line library searches FREE and easy using an Integrated Library System (ILS) developed by DOST-ASTI. Users are directed by the system to excellent resources of information on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and research. ILSes are sometimes called Library Management Systems. It was set up by the PREGINET Team using the Greenstone Digital Library Software, version 2.30. Greenstone is a set of software for building and distributing digital library collections. ASTI designed the ILS to coordinate and automate library functions such as on-line cataloguing, circulation, and acquisition. Large libraries use ILSes or LMSes to order and acquire, receive and account, catalog, circulate, track and shelve materials.
Meanwhile, State Universities and Colleges, government organizations, and research institutions may now host their Website. ASTI also offers Website hosting to users with online systems to enable them to store information, images, video clips, and other content accessible via the World Wide Web. ?(AMGuevarra\ EPagador\ DOST CALABARZON S&T Media Service)
