via Inquirer, 01 September 2022: This five-year plan would see the National Historical Commission of the Philippines digitizing its historical documents.
The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) is seeking to digitize its collections and documents.
NHCP and National Commission for Culture and the Arts chairperson Rene Escalante laid out this plan during Thursday’s Committee on Culture and the Arts hearing.
“What we’re going to do is we will come up with a platform wherein researchers need not to go to NHCP central office in order to access this,” Escalante said.
Escalante highlighted that this plan would be under the National Memory Project, a five-year program aiming to help researchers by collecting and digitizing archival documents.
