A slide show about libraries I want to go to in my lifetime. Made for a subject when I was in 2nd year, Comp 311: EDP Fundamentals. Enjoy! I recently included University of San Carlos-Talamban, now the largest library in the Philippines. Included of course is Henry Luce III LIbrary of Central Philippine University, where I spend 90% of my time in school (also largest library in Western Visayas in terms of collections).
