DASA infograph 20151221 partThe website of Sejarah Nusantara that is developed by The Corts Foundation and ANRI together to publish parts of the VOC archives contains thousands of scans, digitized archive series, databases that are fully searchable and connect to documents and scans, embedded book publications and scientific articles. Most sources are connected with eachother and can be browsed and filtered.

To show these relationships, the numbers of scans and records, an infograph was created by Marco Roling of The Corts Foundation. The full size infograph is clickable to immediately go to the specific pages of the website that was created in the DASA project

diplletterexampleThe Corts Foundation, in collaboration with the Arsip Nasional Republic Indonesia and Leiden University, has finally published 8,568 diplomatic letters to and from Batavia Castle from the 17th and 18th century on the website of Sejarah Nusantara. These letters were found in the archive series of Daily Journals of Batavia Castle (inv.nr. 2495-2623), and an additional series 'Incoming and Outgoing Missives from Indigenous rulers' (inv.nr. 3567-3593). A database was created to provide access to an index to letters that were send to and from Batavia. Also all the letters were mapped geographically and visualized in charts and maps. Additionally scans were made to complete the archive inventory numbers that contain diplomatic letters. 

For the first time we display a so far hidden collection of letters from mainly Indonesian sultans and radja’s. In fact, this is the biggest collection of archival materials originating from Indonesian rulers, only discovered in 2013 and a true historian's treasure. 

All diplomatic letters can be accessed here:
