STARBOOKS LIGHT UP BOHOL SCHOOLS | Marjorie Lamoste, Grade 11 student of the Pagnitoan National High School in Maribojoc, Bohol tries her hand at research using the Science and Technology Academic and Research-Based Openly Operated Kiosks or STARBOOKS, a stand-alone digital S&T library-in-a box. Developed by the Department of Science and Technology Science and Technology Information Institute (DOST-STII), STARBOOKS is fully loaded with S&T information materials such as books, journals, theses, videos, news articles, and others, that are available offline. DOST-STII designed STARBOOKS to run without Internet to make S&T materials accessible to students, researchers, and teachers in the countryside that have limited access to libraries and the Internet. Maribojoc, a fourth-class town in Bohol with a hilly terrain, is 14 kilometers away from the bustling Tagbilaran City and has limited transportation service. Pagnitoan National High School was one of the six Bohol schools that received STARBOOKS units through DOST-STII's partners, the Children's Hour and Sun Life Foundation, and facilitated by the DOST=Bohol. Lamoste led the students in thanking DOST "for the gift" and pledged that students will use STARBOOKS in research activities.  (Photo and text by Framelia V. Anonas, S&T Media Service, DOST-STII)
