The library started as “Amang” Foundation Library with few collections of books and “Amang” Memorabilia. It occupied room at the third floor of the Apilado Building and was supervised by Ms. Corazon P. Villafania.
In 1986, the library was transferred to a bigger space at the second floor of Regala Buiding to accommodate the growing number of the students. It served as the central library of the institute supervised by Dr. Flocerfida M. Doña. Ms. Erlinda P. Natal was also assigned as chief of the Library Services for a time but later on its supervision was returned to Dr. Flocerfida M. Doña in the same capacity as chief of the Library Services.
In 2002, through the directive of the president, Dr. Maura V. Bautista, the central library was devolved to the different colleges in connection with the vertical structure policy.
With the AACCUP recommendations after several accreditation visits, a four story building was built in 2006. The ground floor is occupied by the EARIST Museum, the second floor houses the Science and Technology Library, the third is occupied by the General Education Library and the fourth floor is the Information Technology Center (ITC) which serves as the Audio Visual or Multimedia Center.
As part of the institutes’ commitment to the quality and excellence, we continuously endeavor to develop the EARIST Library to meet the standard of modern library.
