A Digital Repatriation of a Lost Archive of the Spanish Pacific: The Library of The Convent of San Pablo (Manila, 1762)

 is a transnational, inter-institutional research and community engagement project focused on the digital reconstruction of the context and  contents of the dispersed 18th century Library of the Convent of San Agustin in Manila.

Beyond the digital reconstruction of the archival corpus, the “return” of the library is re-imagined to include the reconceptualisation of the library’s original systems of knowledge production, modes of access, its audience and use.
