The Temporary Reading Room of the National Archives of the Philippines (NAP) remains open to researchers as always. It is located at 1153 Cristobal Street, Paco, Manila. We continue to serve reformatted copies (photocopy, digital, and microfilm) of our collection to our clientele.For records that are not yet reformatted, we will endeavor to have them available in digital format within one (1) week after the request is made. However, the digitization period may be affected by the number of researchers and the volume of record bundles being requested in a particular week.

The Spanish Documents Section Collection is currently being transferred from the National Library of the Philippines to a new NAP facility in Manila. The transfer is projected to finish by March 2020. Please bear with us if delays arise.

For any questions and inquiries regarding our Reading Room policies and procedures please call Ms. Aurea Silva at tel. no. (02) 8353-3192.
