Filipiniana Online & The Digital Future of Libraries

An invite I got from the Filipinas Heritage Library: 
Greetings from the Filipinas Heritage Library!
Since 1996, FHL has aimed to be the one-stop electronic research center for Filipiniana and it is only now that we have almost realized this goal through our newest library offering: Filipiniana Online.
Filipiniana Online is an e-library of over 2,000 rare Filipiniana materials which FHL has created in partnership with Trade Channel Philippines. This online facility was produced by initially scanning the materials into PDF files (using a non-invasive book scanner) and later converting it into “flipbooks” (powered by Digizines). The platform allows the user to still have the experience of “flipping” the pages of the e-book when reading, albeit virtually on a tablet or a laptop.
It is in this connection that we are writing you. May we invite you and other teachers/ lovers/researchers of Filipiniana to join us on January 22, 2014 at 3:00 pm in the 2nd floor function room of the Ayala Museum for the launch of the Filipiniana Online? Through Filipiniana Online, we believe that having access to primary sources on culture, heritage, and history of the Philippines, will make the Filipino youth appreciate their Pinoy roots. Indeed, we think that Filipiniana Online is a hip and cool way for them to learn more about himself or herself as a Filipino.
Please feel free to disseminate this e-invite to kindred souls wishing to have access to Filipiniana anywhere, anytime. Truly, Filipiniana Online is the best way for today’s generation to have History at Your Fingertips!
