The largest collection of Filipiniana online

This site has probably the largest collection of Filipiniana on the internet: The United States and Its Territories, 1870 - 1925: The Age of Imperialism.

The United States and its Territories, drawn from the University of Michigan Library's Southeast Asia collection, comprises the full text of monographs and government documents published in the United States, Spain, and the Philippines between 1870 and 1925. The primary focus of the material is the Spanish-American war and subsequent American governance (approximately 1898-1910). The text collection is complemented by digitized images from key photograph collections drawn from the Special Collections Library.

What an awesome collection! I've browsed the site and saw a lot of interesting titles, some even from Cebuano authors. The images gallery contains tons of photos of the country during the latter period of the Spanish colonial era and early American period.
