Bringing the mountain to Mohamad. This is exactly what the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) has done in regard to bringing S&T information to the grassroots. Through the Science and Technology Academic Research-Based Openly Operated Kiosks or STARBOOKS, DOST reached places that had limited S&T information resources nor Internet connection.
STARBOOKS is the country’s first digital library with hundreds of thousands of S&T information content. Developed by the DOST’s Science and Technology Information Institute, STARBOOKS recently celebrated another milestone.
