From London with Love: Digital Filipiniana at SOAS

During the last 5 years, different initiatives have started to digitize Philippine rare printed materials and gathering them in collections. Although most of these initiatives are based in the Philippines (we have already talked about the Digital Library of UST and their growing periodical collection), Spain or the US, there is one which is UK based. The School of Oriental and African Studies of the University of London (SOAS) has created Digital Filipiniana, a collection of miscellaneous rare books on the Philippines. They have, among others, 95 holdings in English, 27 in Spanish, 22 in Tagalog/ Filipino, and 10 in Malay.
