From the National Library:
"The Public Libraries Division (PLD) through its Training Section is making major shifts in direction to cope up and remain resilient quickly amidst the rapid shifts in this difficult time. With the COVID-19 pandemic, the face-to-face training has transitioned to cloud services to make sure to enable connections, particularly to public libraries affiliated with the National Library of the Philippines.

Through this Webinar, public libraries in and outside the country will have opportunities to connect, engage and learn from one another. The webinar will focus on the different mechanisms and strategies of resiliencies in libraries and how they adapt to changes."

The speakers and their topics for this event are the following:

Christian George F. Acevedo (Librarian, Capiz State University)
Fake News and Pandemics in the Philippines: Information Literacy in Public Health Crisis

Lucila R. Raquino (President, ALPS; Librarian V of Quezon City Public Library)

Stephen B. Alayon (Senior Information Assistnat, SEAFDEC/AQD)

I have also registered for the webinar and if I have time, I will write a blog entry about the event.
