  1. Hi! How do I contact Ms. Sonia Gementiza?

    The topic of your MIBF forum is a relevant issue today for our academic library. I plan to attend it. So, how do I contact Ms. Gementiza in order to have a slot reserved (for Ms. Jo-Ann Guimary Golfo, Reference and Periodicals Librarian, Asian Theological Seminary)?
