Historic Cham Manuscripts of Vietnam: Creating Access to Endangered Materials

On October 25, GETSEA will be hosting an event celebrating the launch of the Southeast Asia Digital Library‘s new collection, Historic Cham Manuscripts of Vietnam.

The collection contains 977 digitized manuscripts, totaling more than 57,800 pages of content from this important Vietnamese minority group. In celebration of this collection, Hao Phan, Southeast Asia Curator at Northern Illinois University, and Jody Butterworth, Curator for the British Library’s Endangered Archives Programme, will come together to discuss the origins of this collection, its research potential, and the challenges of digitizing cultural heritage materials in remote field locations.

Faculty and students from GETSEA institutions are encouraged to join us on Zoom to learn more about the resources available at SEADL, and to explore this collection.
