Digital Repository of Endangered and Affected Manuscripts in Southeast Asia (DREAMSEA) is a Programme that strives to preserve the content of manuscripts in the entire region of Southeast Asia. The Programme is carried out by the Center for the Study of Islam and Society (PPIM) Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta State Islamic University (UIN) Jakarta, Indonesia, in cooperation with the Centre for the Study of Manuscripts Culture (CSMC), University of Hamburg, Germany. The Programme is supported by Arcadia, a philanthropic institution based in London, England. The programme lasts for up till five years (2017-2022) and takes place throughout the year on a full-time basis.
DREAMSEA will preserve the manuscripts throughout Southeast Asia. Southeast Asia is a region with a high rate of cultural diversity. Since this Programme wants to safeguard this diversity, it will accommodate manuscripts written in any script and field of science as long as the manuscripts originate from the region of Southeast Asia.

About HMML Cloud
HMML Cloud is a IIIF hosting service developed by the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library that also can include a simple application that allows digitization and cataloging projects to make their collections visible and searchable to the public.
HMML Cloud draws on the software expertise and cataloging methods used to operate HMML Reading Room. HMML Cloud’s database uses simplified best practices for cataloging along with HMML's digital preservation system for images to create an "out of the box" online catalog for digitized manuscripts where users can add/edit records and view these collections.
HMML Cloud provides a long-term preservation model for external projects short of funding, while fulfilling HMML's mission to save manuscript culture around the world through its ability to store manuscript digital data.
