Not much has been written or published about the history of libraries in the Philippines. A few articles that are available online are:
- "Trends in Philippine Library History" by Vicente S. Hernandez
- "The DOST-ESEP Libraries: The First Library Network in the Philippines" by Lourdes T. David
- "Books and Bookmaking in the Philippines" by Rosa M. Vallejo (Note: This is not really about libraries, but it was written by a librarian.)
Anyway, R. Dante O. Perez has written a thesis on "Philippine Libraries and Librarianship, 1900-2005: A Historical Perspective," and will be sharing the results of his research on 22 February 2006. For more information, please click here.
