Abstract: Statistics from 229 special libraries indicate that a large majority are government supported, with 70% having collections of fewer than 5,000 titles. Sixty percent fall roughly in the subject areas of business-finance, medicine-public health, science-technology, and social sciences. Outstanding features and activities of selected libraries illustrate the current scene in this rapidly developing country. Problems frequently result from restrictive government regulations, lack of adequate financial support, and difficulties with mail and other communication services. The Association of Special Libraries of the Philippines is working actively to encourage the establishment and development of special libraries and to improve the status of librarians by, for example, adopting standards and increasing opportunities for continuing education.
