Abstract

This paper emphasizes the preservation of palm leaf manuscripts with regard to digitization and collaboration of related institutions. While many institutions focus on digitization, some issues have been raised to spread awareness of strategies and patrons. Therefore,  the concept of collaboration among institutions at all levels—local, national, and international—is proposed. The idea of digitization suggested in this paper is considered as a part of preservation. Moreover, the concept of collaboration is highlighted as a key to unlocking the limitation of manuscript preservation in Southeast Asia.
