This paper provides an overview of digitised collections within universities in Indonesia, starting from the Ganesha Digital Library Network in 1998, which developed into the Indonesian Digital Libraries Network (IDLN), with 87 private and institutional members. The State Ministry of Research and Technology has distributed document digitising software (Docushare) to universities, and this has been used (for example by the Association of Catholic Universities in Indonesia) to digitise more than 14,000 documents. The challenges faced in the digitisation of materials in Indonesian libraries are outlined.
