Visitors to the recent Kuala Lumpur Engineering Science Fair (KLESF) in Selangor, Malaysia try the Philippines’ very own Science and Technology Academic and Research-Based Openly Operated Kiosks or STARBOOKS, developed by the Department of Science and Technology-Science and Technology Information Institute (DOST-STII). The first of its kind in the Philippines, STARBOOKS is a standalone information system placed in specially designed pods, and requires no Internet connection. It contains thousands of local and foreign S&T materials in various formats covering different topics like medicine, nutrition, energy, environment, and others. DOST’s “library in a box” will also be featured at the celebration of National Biotechnology Week, happening on November 23- 28, 2015 at SM City Dasmariñas, Cavite.
