The University of Santo Tomas Miguel de Benavides Library launched the Gadget Corner last November 8, 2016. This was conceived following a series of library benchmarking activities attended by Chief librarian and some librarians, which led to the facilities to be installed by CE-Logic.

The CE Logic installed the facility consisting of 10 tablets for searching the electronic resources, namely: e-book databases, electronic databases, electronic databases, local databases, and open-access resources. The area is located at the lobby adjacent to the Circulation Section.

Simultaneous to this launching was the blessing of the Leisure Reading Area situated also at the lobby of the library. The area’s purpose is for light reading in an informal setting. It is designed as comfort zone for its unique features and ambiance. The two new facilities were blessed by the Prefect of Libraries, Fr. Angel Aparicio, O.P. The facilities are now ready for use by the Thomasian Community.
