|Abstract:||Professional library associations promote lifelong learning through the conduct of continuing professional development (CPD) programs. Membership in professional associations influences one’s professional identification. In anticipating the upcoming ASEAN integration, how confident are the professional library associations in the Philippines in engaging its young professionals to actively participate and involve in its activities and programs? This paper would like to: a) know the level of awareness of the senior undergraduate students taking-up Library and Information Science (LIS) and those young career professionals’ ages 20-30 towards the numerous professional library associations established in the country; and b) gauge the perceptions and attitudes of the young professionals in choosing which professional library association they would like to affiliate themselves.|
