Filipiniana Online: CORMOSEA Bulletin 31 (2008)

The latest issue of the CORMOSEA Bulletin (pdf), published by the Committee on Research Materials on Southeast Asia (CORMOSEA), focuses on the Philippines. The articles include

"Documentary Sources on the History of Manila at the Archdiocesan Archives of Manila" by Rev. Fr. Roy M. Rosales (pp. 1-8)
"The Culion Leprosy Museum and Archives" by Ricardo L. Punzalan (pp. 9-18)
"Filipiniana Online" by Vernon R. Totanes (pp. 19-23)
I wrote the last article even before my presentation at the Rizal Library International Conference. Unfortunately, due to the unpredictability of the publication process, the article only came out now—a few months after Microsoft’s Live Search Books, one of the sites I recommended, was shut down.

The first paragraph of my article is reproduced below, so you can see whether you'd like to read the rest of it =)
"Online research" is supposed to be what lazy students do. Scholars, meanwhile, are expected to travel to different libraries, archives and museums to consult documents, photographs and books. This, however, is not necessarily true anymore because more and more resources are becoming available online. In some cases, surfing the web is not only less expensive, but also more productive because researchers can examine texts more closely and are not limited by policies regarding physical access to the materials.
