The Southeast Asia Microform Project (SEAM) has completed its project to microfilm issues of Radar Bogor from 1999 to 2011. 

This Indonesian newspaper, founded in 1998, is published in the west Javan city of Bogor, about 40 miles south of the capital city of Jakarta. SEAM selected Radar Bogor for preservation due to its extensive coverage of local events during the turbulent years after the resignation of President Suharto.

The project contains 68 reels of microfilm. Holdings for this project were contributed by the University of Michigan.
