For my family and to all Aklanons the world over.
INTRODUCTION


Aklan is an old name but it became an independent province only when Republic Act No. 1414 was approved on April 25, 1956.

Despite its long glorious history, however, very few people know where Aklan is, except for the Ati-Atihan and the Boracay Beach. The former is an annual festival is held not only in Kalibo but also in Ibajay every third Sunday of January.

This paper is not a history of Aklan. Rather, it presents those scattered Aklaniana materials which I had come across during the searching period of this bibliography. Secondly, it hopes to place our province at the center of development. It is a fact that development is fast when materials for research are known and available to the scholars, students and researchers. Aklan, as many people knew, has lagged behind in almost all aspects of life. Thirdly, originally, to comply with my requirements in Library Science 210, at the Institute of Library Science, University of the Philippines in Diliman.
By Aklaniana materials, I mean only those books, theses, periodical and newspaper articles regardless of their authors or their languages, but they must directly deal with Aklan. Thus, those works written by Aklanons but do not touch directly on Aklan are excluded here like some of the works of the De la Cruz family. This bibliography is, therefore a selective compilation of Aklaniana sources. An exception to this are poems, short stories, and other literary pieces written by Aklanons. Why? Because literature is a universal work and Aklan literature will not develop if we leave it behind.

This bibliography is the first bibliography on Aklan. I am well aware that this work is far from complete. I know so well that there so many sources found in the private collections of some Aklanons particularly the Nabor and the De la Cruz families in Aklan, but for lack of time and money and the distance that separates them from me is not practical for me to see them at this moment. I hope, however, to make a more comprehensive bibliography in the future.
This bibliography includes books, thesis, periodical and newspaper articles and pamphlets published from 1890 to 2002. They were culled from the following libraries: The University of the Philippine Libraries in Diliman, Manila, and Iloilo, Manuel L. Quezon University, The National Library, and from the collections of this compiler. The readers will note that most of the items listed here are annotated.

It has been my wish to annotate all of them, but for lack of time, I failed. I included them here, however, so that the readers will know that such items are available.

I tried my best to furnish the complete bibliographical information for each item. Appropriate spaces are provided for those sources which lack bibliographical information. Call numbers are provided for books, if any. Those books with call number using the Library of Congress scheme are found in the University of the Philippines Libraries; while those in Dewey Decimal Classification scheme are located at the National Library. Most of the periodicals are found in the UP Libraries.

ARRANGEMENT

The items included here are arranged into the following broad subjects: Humanities (like Religion, Literature, Movies), Social Sciences (like Politics, Geography), and Science and Technology, under which the items are alphabetically arranged by authors. Those works under one author are arranged alphabetically by title. Works without authors are placed under “Anonymous” or Anon. Likewise, they are arranged alphabetically by title.
