For the information of those librarians who are graduates of BSE,
BSEE, AB, and other degrees with major or specialization in Library
Science, who would like to take the Licensure Exam for the last time
(scheduled this Nov 2009), please be informed that the request made by
the Board for Librarians for a resolution "extending the period within
which to allow graduates of the above mentioned degrees to take the
examination" has been denied. Justification for the denial is based on
the provision of the law (RA 9246) which allowed the above mentioned
graduates to take the licensure exam within the time frame of five (5)
years from the effectivity of the law. Since the time period specified
by the law has expired, any extension can only be done thru an
amendment of the law, and any amendment "can only be made by the same
body that created the law." (see attachment)

Mrs. Corazon M. Nera, as Chairman of the Board for Librarians, at the
