The Southeast Asian Digital Archives

The University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) requests $265,643 to establish the Southeast Asian Digital Archives (SEADA) by processing and digitizing eight archival collections documenting the rich history of Southeast Asian (SEA) refugees in the greater Lowell, Massachusetts, region in the late 20th century. UML's Library and Center for Asian American Studies will collaborate with several community organizations to better understand the histories and cultures of Southeast Asian Americans by collecting, documenting, preserving, and making publicly accessible the vast public and personal materials that are currently in danger of being damaged, lost, or discarded.
