The Spanish Document Section (SDS) and Reading Room of the National Archives of the Philippines (NAP) located at the National Library of the Philippines (NLP) Building remains closed until further notice.

This closure is necessarry to properly implement the transfer of the SDS Collection (now a declared National Treasure) to temporary quarters. This transfer is due to the ongoing retrofitting of the NLP Building.

The temporary Reading Room that has been set-up at the NAP Extension Office at 1153 Cristobal St., Paco, Manila remains open to the public. This temporary Reading Room continues to serve selected microfilms of a portion of the Spanish Documents Collection as well as the following digitized records:

1. Asuntos Civiles

2. Asuntos Criminales

3. Unclassified Records (Selected)

4. Cuerpo de Vigilancia Records

5. Museo Naval Records

We regret any incovenience this may cause.
