15 Sep Visit delegation Indonesian National Library
On 15 September, a delegation of the Indonesian National Library – Perpustakaan Nasional Republik Indonesia (PNRI)) – led by Mr. Dedy Junaedi (prime secretary of the PNRI) visited KITLV. The delegation was welcomed by our research staff members Professor Willem van der Molen and Drs. Nico van Horn.
The delegation members will visit several institutes in the Netherlands, to talk about cooperation in the field of collection practices, for example digitizing and training. During the meeting with Van der Molen and Van Horn, the delegation expressed its wish to renew the Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in academic and research related activities between KITLV and PNRI. In the past there have already been many collaborative activities between KITLV and PNRI, such as the microfilming of manuscripts. A recent example is the international course on Old Javanese in Trawas (East Java) in June 2014, organized by the PNRI in cooperation with KITLV and the Ecole Française d’Extrême-Orient (EFEO).
