Mr. Gerry O. Laroza, Head of the Computer and Audio Visual Services of the Rizal Library of Ateneo de Manila University created INFOLIB, a free library information system intended for small libraries and non-profit entities with 10,000 or less collection . Through the generosity of Mrs. Lourdes David, Director of Rizal Library, INFOLIB installer was given to libraries for free as part of their outreach program. The province of Quezon is privileged to be given this free software and be one of the pioneers in using the library system. INFOLIB update installer is now available and can be accessed through the QLA Officers.
