I/ The Institute of Han-Nom StudiesIts function
and collection
  • IHNS is the largest center in Vietnam devoted to
    decoding the Hán Nôm heritage.
  • It performs multiple functions of collecting,
    preserving, restoring, translating, researching
    and publishing the Hán Nôm heritage of Vietnam.
  • It also trains Hán Nôm researchers, organizes
    seminars on Hán Nôm research, and engages in
    various exchanges and cooperative activities with
    institutions of foreign countries.

4
Information Resources
  • 20,000 books (including Nôm books of the Dao,
    Tày, and other ethnic groups in Vietnam).

5
Information Resources
  • More than 54,000 paper rubbings from stone
    steles, bronze bells, stone gongs and wood
    plaques (including stele inscriptions left by the
    Cham ethnic group) dating from the Lý Dynasty
    (11th Century) to the Nguy?n Dynasty (20th
    Century).

6
Information Resources
  • In addition, the Institute holds more than
    20,000 units of wood block printing and 25,000
    reference books in Vietnamese, Chinese and other
    languages.

II/ How to Widely Provide Han-Nom Knowledge to
the Research Community
  • Han-Nom collection is the most important resource
    for those who wants to study Vietnamese country
    and Vietnamese people in the past, because it is
    the original source ( the Han-Nom heritage).
  • To meet the above requirement, we need to create
    a future international Vietnamese/Han-Nom
    e-library with concerned institutions and
    individuals to share e-research materials
    worldwide and to promote Vietnamese/ Han-Nom
    scholarship in pre-modern Vietnamese studies.
  • This would be in response to the growing interest
    in research and teaching in Han Nom studies and
    the lack of convenient electronic access to the
    significant Han Nom resources that are scattered
    in the national libraries, research institutes,
    museums, archives, and personal libraries in
    Vietnam and in other countries.

8
  • To bring traditional knowledge to the modern
    society, the Institute of Han-Nom Studies has
    organized a lot of training courses to equip
    researchers the needed knowledge to decode the
    indigenous materials in our collection. Their
    value will help young people nowadays to learn
    and keep up the old generation in order to
    develop the society and its economy.
  • The best way to provide knowledge to the
    researchers and young generation is to create
    digital library.

9
  • THE E-LIBRARY WILL HAVE THE FOLLOWING FEATURES
  • Contain all recorded knowledge online
    Distributed, maintained globally Accessible
    by Act
    as the information resource
  • any person
  • in any language
  • at any time
  • at any where on earth
  • via the Internet


10
EXPERIENCES IN CREATING THE HAN NOM E-LIBRARY AT
THE INSTITUTE OF HÁN-NÔM STUDIES
  • Digitization of the Han-Nom books A single
    database of digital images was created right from
    the early 1998 for the most valuable and heavy
    used Han-Nom materials with the resolution of
    about 300 DPI, 24 bit color deep, JPG format.
  • An integrated database has been created since
    2004 up to now (using SQL server 2000), linking
    both the digital images with the bibliographic
    information and the Vietnamese translation that
    can be searched via authors, titles and keywords,
    ...
  • Until now, all Nom collection, Genealogy and the
    most precious historical works are digitized.

11
DIGITIZATION OF PAPER RUBBING OF HAN-NOM
INSCRIPTION
  • Depending on the basis of today's knowledge and
    the current situation, we use the digital camera
    (NIKON Cool Pix 5.000) together with some other
    equipments to photo all our rubbings with the
    funding from E.F.E.O (France).
  • This is an international cooperative project
    between Vietnam and France, so far we already
    published 10 volumes of the stele inscription and
    plan 44 volumes more in the coming years.

12
CREATING FULL-TEXT ELECTRONIC JOURNAL DELIVERY
OF HAN-NOM REVIEW ON THE INTERNET
  • Tap Chi Han Nom (Han Nom Review) is an important
    bimonthly scholarly journal of Han Nom studies in
    Vietnamese with Chinese and English translations
    of the table of contents. The contents of the
    journal have been greatly enhanced over the years
    ranging from scholarly articles, book reviews,
    exchange of opinions to selected Han Nom works
    for research reference and news update.
    http//www.hannom.org.vn/
  • So far, we are doing word processing the entire
    run of the full-text journal and the ongoing
    issues of the Han Nom Review to provide
    electronic access to users all over the world.
    The database of Han Nom Review includes a
    searchable index by author, title and keywords.

13
Create Han-Nom E-Library
  • For a long term strategic plan, the Institute of
    Han-Nom Studies needs to create the research
    library/the Han-Nom e-library that would benefit
    all participating parties as well as the general
    public.
  • First and foremost we need to do surveys in all
    libraries/institutions that have Han-Nom
    resources to build an on-line union catalog by
    the method of central catalogs as well as to form
    a library consortium.

14
On Creating Library Consortium
1. Modern information

3. On line
2. Direct delivery
4. To the users
15
The functions of Han-Nom e-library
1. Provide an on-line union catalog of all
Han-Nom resources, update and maintain
bibliographic access of all users worldwide
  • Serve as a Vietnamese/Han-Nom Studies
    Clearinghouse on a continual basis

2. Update and maintain bibliographic access to
the ongoing expanded union catalogs of Han-Nom
collection
3. Continued maintaining an Internet-based
infrastructure for full-text electronic journal
delivery of Tap chi Han Nom
4. Provide pedagogical resources for online
interactive teaching and learning needs.
5. Doing digitization of the full-text
dissertations on the field of Social Sciences and
Humanities of all the institutions of VASS
6. Creating bibliographic database connecting the
digitized data above
16
Quality will be instead of Quantity
  • Recently, we try to apply information technology
    to all library activities, reference services can
    be implemented via email and telephone during the
    working hours of the week.
  • The acquisition of information will not be much
    problem in the future quality instead of
    quantity will be the focus more than ever before.

17
Book Museums Only
  • We hope when the sources of knowledge are
    completely represented in digital form, physical
    libraries could certainly continue to exist, but
    with advancing digitization, their function is
    not as important as nowadays, and they would be
    seen as an archive of printed collections or as
    book museums only.

18
8. Conclusion
  • In the trend of globalization, Vietnam needs to
    integrate to the world in the Library-Information-
    Science, library would serve as a motive force
    for the construction of the nation marked by a
    rich population, a strong country, an equitable,
    democratic and civilized society.
  • Have in hands the most precious indigenous
    material of Vietnam, the Institute of Han-Nom
    Studies has been doing research on specialized
    theoretical issues, editing reference volumes as
    well as introducing major authors and works in
    order to meet the demand of socialization of
    Han-Nom knowledge, serving the construction of
    advanced Vietnamese culture imbued national
    identity.
