SEAM/Luce Microfilming and
Preservation Project in Vietnam
The Center for Research Libraries, on behalf of the Southeast Asia Microform Project (SEAM), submitted a proposal to the Henry Luce Foundation in October 1993 to carry out preservation microfilming activities of important historical material in Vietnam. The Luce Foundation awarded $180,000 to SEAM for this project in 1994; the Harvard Yenching Institute provided an additional $35,000 to support the purchase of camera equipment. Project funds have been used to purchase filming and processing equipment, support travel for researchers and consultants involved in negotiations and training with Vietnamese institutions, and pay for project staff engaged in the administration and duties of the project. The SEAM/Luce Microfilming and Preservation Project in Vietnam aims to make available specific materials to U.S. researchers, while providing Vietnamese research institutions with the capacity for sustained preservation activities.
Thai Journal Indexing Project
The Thai Journal Indexing Project, based at the University of Washington Libraries, is part of a cooperative initiative of the Committee on Research Materials on Southeast Asia (a sub-committee of the Association for Asian Studies) to strengthen access to vernacular journal literature from Southeast Asia.
