This two year experiment whereby SEAM will pay and subscribe to newspaper titles from Southeast Asia through the Library of Congress Jakarta that will ship collated issues to CRL for microfilming using SEAM workflow. All microfilmed copies can be accessed through CRL.
The titles include: Indonesia (Jakarta Post, Kompas); Malaysia (New Straits Times, Berita...
