Registered and Licensed Professional Librarians to Use and Append to their Names the Professional Title “RL”

Pursuant to Resolution No. 03 (A), Series of 2017, the Professional Regulatory Board for Librarians (PRBFL) allows all registered and licensed librarians to use and append professional title “RL” (Registered Librarian) at the end of their name.

This resolution was crafted in response to the request of the Philippine Librarians Association, Inc. (PLAI), the Accredited and Integrated Professional Organization (AIPO) of Librarians to provide a uniform reference to all professional Librarians.

Inappropriate use of the title by unlicensed individuals is punishable under Sec. 315, Chapter Six, Book II of the Revised Penal Code.
