Under the direction of the Founding Librarian, Dietrich Borchardt, La Trobe University Library acquired a variety of books and research material about the Philippines in the late 1960s. Acquisitions continued, and today the collection is a large up-to-date selection of research literature related to the Philippines, including some works in Spanish from the Spanish colonial period.

The Philippines is a multicultural democracy with a large English-speaking population that has many cultural affinities with contemporary Australia. PAF at La Trobe invites you to explore the collection and learn about the fifth migrant community in Australia.
