Manuel A. Roxas (1892-1948) was the last President of the Commonwealth, first President of the Republic, first bar top-notcher in 1913 and an alumnus of the University of the Philippines.

In celebration of his 54th death anniversary on 22 April 2002, the University of the Philippines (UP) and the President Manuel A Roxas Foundation (PMARF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to institute the Manuel A. Roxas Studies Program, which aims to increase awareness of Roxas' legacy in politics and economics. The program was spearheaded by the UP National College of Public Administration and Governance under Dean Ma. Concepcion P. Alfiler and the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy under Dean Cynthia B. Bautista.

On the same day, the University Librarian/Archivist, UP Diliman Salvacion M. Arlante put up a Photo-memorabilia Exhibit on Roxas in the Filipiniana Book Section. Two months later, she started microfilming the President Manuel A. Roxas Papers owned by the foundation with a copy to be deposited in the University Archives and Records Depository. In July 2002, she proposed the project to build "An Annotated Bibliography on President Manuel A. Roxas" in book as well as in digital format, which will provide the research base for the Manuel A. Roxas Program.

This bibliographic project has two parts. Part I is an annotated bibliography consisting of works by Roxas - his books, speeches, addresses, messages and statements - both published and unpublished. Part II consists of works on or about Roxas compiled from various sources in 9 local and 13 foreign libraries and institutions. A subject index with annotations comprises the bibliography in print; scanned images of selected materials have been added to the bibliography in electronic format as a distinctive feature. In this database available online, the works by Roxas ran up to 542 entries; while the works on or about Roxas ran up to 143 entries.
