Aims and objectives
This is aimed at preserving and digitisation the manuscripts collection of Palembang. The collection is comprised of 30 manuscripts in the forms of historical record about Sultanate Palembang Darussalam during the Dutch Colonial era, Sammaniyah spiritual teachings, customary laws, prophecies and local wisdoms. Given the vulnerability of physical conditions of the scripts, they will be digitised by taking a photograph of each document. In addition, this project will also conduct training for the team and members of manuscripts community to increase their knowledge on the proper handling of ancient manuscripts.
This project has been catalogued as:
- EAP1454/1 Nyimas Umi Kalsum Collection (18th century-19th century)
