Glezly Jandoguile: A Librarian

Glezly Jandoguile: A Librarian
Glezly Jandoquile, or Glezly for short, really wanted to become a nurse or a doctor because she wanted to wear white uniform. “Nurses and doctors look neat in their white uniforms,” she said.
But her desire to become a nurse or a doctor was changed when she met her close friend, Colyn Kaye Quebra. Both of them were enrolled in one of the universities in Iloilo City. Her friend was enrolled in Bachelor of Library and Information Science (BLIS) degree while she was enrolled in Bachelor of Science in Education, major in Filipino.
One time they discussed about their respective courses. Through their conversation, Glezly was encouraged to take up a library science degree.
After one month, Glezly transferred to the BLIS degree. She stayed on to her new course until she graduated. Immediately after that, she took the licensure examination for librarianship. Fortunately, she passed it.
Immediately after passing the licensure exam for librarianship, she was hired as a librarian at Ateneo de Iloilo. Like other new professionals, Glezly did not stay long in her first job. She applied as a librarian at St. Paul University Iloilo. Luckily, she was accepted.
What convinced her to take up library science as a profession? She said she loves to work in the library especially in an academic library because she learns new things everyday. She is forever thankful to her co-workers who are willing to share their library knowledge and skills. She applies these new things when students and faculty members ask help from her in locating valuable information for their research works. Along side with this, she learns the value of equal access to resources, and intellectual freedom.
Likewise, she enjoys working in the library not only because she has the chance to read more newspapers, magazines, journal articles and books which she can share the information she gathers to her students when she conducts religious classes in their congregation.
She knows that as a librarian, she will not be able to compete with doctors and other professionals who earn thousands of pesos per day, but when she goes home happy especially when she is able to help students find the right and sufficient information for their academic requirements, that is more than money to her.
Glezly Fontelo Jandoquile was born on June 27, 1998 at Western Visayas Medical Center in Mandurriao, Iloilo City. She took her elementary education at Baluarte Elementary School, Iloilo City, after which she continued her studies at Iloilo City National High School. She took her Bachelor of Library and Information Science at University of San Agustin.
Glezly loves to sing. Because of this, she joined the choral group since high school until she graduated in college. This singing talent of her supported her through college.
When I asked her on what advise she can share to the Filipino youth, she said: “Listen to your voice and soul. Let no one decides for your future.”
