Cataloging Librarian

Born in the Philippines, Flor attended Febias College of Bible in Valenzuela City and took her Master’s degree in Library Science at the University of the Philippines. She was the Head Librarian of Asian Theological Seminary in Manila before she and her family came to the United States. In the Philippines, Flor was a member of the team of librarians who formed the Philippine Theological Library Association and she has conducted seminars among bible and theological school librarians. She joined the CIU library staff in July 1998 and has been in charge of cataloging library materials which she loves to do. Besides working at CIU, Flor does indexing for CPI (Christian Periodical Index) a publication of the Association of Christian Librarians. CPI provides access to articles and reviews written from an evangelical perspective or of interest to the evangelical community.

“I work best behind the scene but I also enjoy working with student workers in my department. My goal is to classify and organize books and other materials, putting them in the right place so that library users can easily find the resources they need.”
