Sejarah Melayu

Today a friend (who could hardly contain his glee) told me about a great online resource called Sejarah Melayu (Malay History), which bills itself as A History of the Malay Peninsula but contains goodies from all over the Malay Archipelago. What’s especially interesting is the Sejarah Melayu Library, which is described as…

…perhaps the largest public on-line collection of books and other texts on the history of the Malay archipleago and its surrounding region. Consisting of over 600 documents in electronic PDF format, the library includes books related to specific topics in the history of the Malay archipleago and its surrounding region, travelogues, general histories, academic papers, encyclopedias, dictionaries and other types of references. Essential downloads include the Sejarah Melayu itself, the Kedah Annals, Hikayat Abdullah and The Commentaries of Alfonso d’Albuquerque.

Of course, I find myself drawn to the drool-inducing Language section. There’s lots of other great stuff hiding elsewhere on the site too, I think. Do check out this fascinating (and free) resource if you’re interested.
