The Local Governance Regional Resource Center of DILG IV-A CALABARZON has always been proactive in making necessary interventions to bridge the capacity gaps of our Local Government Units. As we progress in time, along with the significant changes we see in our society, adaptability is one of the core values that we embody in our operations. Part of being adaptive to the transformation in the landscape of our society is converting the knowledge that we have into forms that are best accessible and understood by our clients. That is why we maintain the dissemination of knowledge through various channels, not just on print media, but also through social media, and other online platforms. This e-library is one of the initiatives that the organization developed, seeing that there isn't a more opportune time than today to take advantage of online learning. In the time of pandemic when face-to-face interactions are being restricted, we seek to provide convenience to our clients by making available all our knowledge products in a one-stop portal. At the core of all the initiatives that our Department undertakes is the long-standing mission of providing quality service to the Local Government Units (LGUs) that cuts across time and circumstance.

Assistant Regional Director
As the manager of DILG IV-A's Local Governance Regional Resource Center (LGRRC), I have seen how knowledge sharing became the very heart of our organization's operations and systems. At the same time, we also believe that no organization has the monopoly of knowledge and that is why we put value on establishing partnerships with other organizations that have stakes on local governance. On the other end, we also keep our doors open for our clients who wish to access the collected knowledge of our organization and promote a culture of convergence and knowledge sharing in the process.
This is one of the many reasons why this LGRRC E-library was developed. This hopes to make knowledge more accessible to our target clients and general public as well. Through the platform used, it will be easier for users to browse, navigate, inquire, and learn without having to physically transact with our personnel. It also hopes to provide more information on what the Department does to stakeholders and even students who are interested in learning about local governance.
It is a very timely undertaking, given that most people nowadays turn to online learning and this is one way for our Department to stay relevant with the times and the shifting modes of how we consume information and knowledge.
I hope the people will find this place a haven of learning about local governance in the CALABARZON Region. Let us continue to build empowered and knowledge-centric communities!
