As part of the global society, Indonesia has acknowledged the wide use of digitization technology for the protection and promotion of various cultural expressions around the world. Up to this point, the Government has mostly been involved in the use of digitization technology for Indonesian literature and cultural works:

Principale caractéristique de la mesure:

The most significant government involvement related to the use of digitization technology in recent years has been the passing of the Minister of National Education Regulation No. 2 of 2008 on Books. In general, this regulation allows the Government to buy copyrights of textbooks then grant free public access for personal use of the textbooks, including to download and print.

The Government has also been in support of efforts by the National Library of Indonesia (NLI) in utilizing the digitization technology. First, the NLI has operated four units of e‐Mobile libraries since 2006, which serve schools and prisons surrounding Jakarta. Then, in 2015, the NLI developed its own website, which has provided access to:

  • the On-line Public Access Catalog;
  • the Indonesia One Search application that currently stores almost 5 million records from 300 institutions;
  • national literature and cultural works from 2 Presidential Libraries, 33 Provincial Libraries, and 355 District Libraries, including e-books, e-journals, cartographies, microfiches, monographs, on-line magazines, and musical and film archives; and
  • international literature through subscriptions to about 10 thousand e-book titles and 30 e-journal subjects. 

Another beneficiary of the digitization technology is the wayang kulit (shadow puppets) industry, which has gained support from the Government, as well as other stakeholders, for using the technology to improve the inventory, creation, promotion, and distribution of books and films of both traditional and contemporary forms of wayang kulit, mainly through the Wayang Educational Package (WEP) project.
