Scope: The collection is a selected set of approximately 80 websites documenting the Indonesian general elections held in 2009. The collection covers three separate rounds of elections during that year - the parliamentary election held in April, the first round of the presidential election held in April followed by the second/final round of the presidential election in September. As the third most populous democratic country in the world, with population dispersed among many islands and with many different politicial parties, the collection presents a broad sample of the different points of view presented during the election process. Sites harvested include campaign and party websites and blogs as well as sites with information about bio-marine environment issues, an important Indonesian campaign issue in 2009.
The Library of Congress created the Indonesia General Elections 2009 Collection Web Archive; it is part of a continuing effort by the Library’s Web Archiving project Minerva to evaluate, select, collect, catalog, provide access to, and preserve digital materials for future generations of researchers.
Staff from the Library of Congress Jakarta Office and the Asian Division in Washington, D.C. selected the web sites and reviewed the archived results.
Collection Period: July 3, 2009 - October 14, 2009
Number of Sites: Approximately 80 web sites were collected over various periods of time during the overall collection effort.
