Biblioteca digital de Aceh

Aceh, na parte ocidental de Sumatra, foi o centro de resistência indónesia à presença colonial, tanto holandesa, como anteriormente, à portuguesa. Clique aqui para ler mais sobre a ligação histórica entre Portugal e Aceh.  Até muito recentemente opos-se à dominação da Java na Indonesia independente. Foi sempre um centro importante da cultura islâmica, e por esta razão a sua documentação digitalizada que sobreviveu ao tsunamai de há poucos anos é uma fonte valiosa para os estudos da região. O projecto que digitalizou já 600 obras foi financiando pelo governo holandês e pelo Instituto Real do Sudeste Asiático e de Estudos das Caraíbas (KITLV) de Leiden.

Veja por exemplo esta colecção das crónicas malaias:

www.acehbooks.org, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Supplied note:
“Aceh Digital Library now Online! The devastating tsunami that struck
Aceh on 26 December 2004 caused thousands of victims but also
destroyed important libraries in Banda Aceh. The Royal Institute of
Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV) initiated a project to
digitize a major part of the literature on Aceh that is kept in the
KITLV Library. The Dutch Ministry of Education generously financed
this project and the Royal Library of the Netherlands supervised the
digitization process.
[…]
The titles listed are books about Aceh in a variety of languages such
as Indonesian, Acehnese, English, Dutch, as well as other European
languages. At present 656 files are available in digital form in pdf
format on the website. More titles are to follow in the course of
2009. – gvk.”
