The UP NOAH Center

The UP NOAH Center is a core component of the UP Resilience Institute. It was formally adopted by the University of the Philippines during the Board of Regents 1325th meeting on February 23, 2017 as a research center for climate actions and disaster risk reduction and management. An Executive Order signed by UP President Danilo L. Concepcion, (EO PLDC 17-03), established the NOAH Center as a research institute in the UP System.

The core of UP NOAH’s work is producing freely accessible, accurate, reliable, and relevant scientific disaster data. It also highlights a multidisciplinary approach in assessing risk and using the lens of different scientific areas. This ensures that Filipinos are provided an integrative appraisal of the natural hazards that put them in danger.

School of Library and Information Studies

Library and Information Science (LIS) is a profession that is full of people passionate about making a positive change to the world around them, and they tend to be wildly happy about what they do. According to one recent survey, over 85% of information professionals questioned said if they had the choice, they’d do it again.
Information professionals and librarians in particular are in a unique position to bridge the gaps that exist between people, information and technology. In their professional lives, information professionals work to:1)Help scholars locate archival and other resources crucial to their work; 2)Design and develop knowledge-organization systems that allow organizations to more easily find and use resources developed by their members; 3)Help doctors more quickly locate health information in critical situations; 4)Create reader’s advisory resources to encourage young students to develop a lifelong love of reading and learning; 5)Identify sources of assistance in family and personal crises.
