The "PIDS Corner": Making research outputs more accessible

The Institute launched a new dissemination strategy in 2006 to make the results and findings of its various research outputs more visible and accessible at the local and community levels.

This is the setting up of PIDS Corners in selected provincial libraries and college/university-based libraries in various areas outside of Metro Manila. The PIDS Corner consists of shelves that contain the various studies and publications that the Institute has produced through the years. These are made available for free as sources of information, data, and research for students, faculty members, and local decisionmakers. This initiative is in collaboration with provincial government units and colleges and universities in strategic areas of the country. The objective is to be able to contribute to the socioeconomic education of people in localities with limited access to development- and policy-oriented materials.
