corpusdipl exampleThe Corpus Diplomaticum Neerlando-Indicum comprises six volumes, published already between 1907 and 1955 by Mr J.E. Heeres and Dr F.W. Stapel at the Koninklijk Instituut voor Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde (KITLV) as a ‘Bijdrage tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde van Nederlandsch-Indië’. These volumes contain the most imortant collection of political contracts and treaties (more than 1200) concluded by the Dutch in Asia and permits granted to them. It is a rich historical source, but until now only available in print and non-searchable.

The Corts Foundation decided to scan these volumes, partly OCR them and create indexes on the contracts, and names and places in these volumes. The first volume has now been digitized (196 contracts) and published online on the website of Sejarah Nusantara in Indonesia. 
The publication of Volume 1 can be found at:

- Jelle Gerbrandy (Software Engineer)
