Abstract: National libraries in the ASEAN region hold a great wealth of library resources in different formats. So far, most of these material resources have been digitized in these countries for the purpose of preservation and dissemination. To promote understanding and public awareness of ASEAN cultural heritage, various cooperation programs and projects among ASEAN national libraries to preserve and promote ASEAN documentary heritage value have been being done. Recently, the launching of the wide - regional partnership project of National Libraries Asia Pacific (NL-AP) has marked a new development in the field of regional co-operation on sharing documentary sources about ASEAN culture. The project aims to connect together and aggregate ASEAN digitized content on the prototype NL-AP platform to make it easier to find, share and use. The project which is funded by the ASEAN – COCI, led by the National Library Board, Singapore (NLB) under technical support of the National Library of New Zealand (NLNZ) in providing the technology of metadata harvesting and sharing. The paper refers to the duties of NL-AP partners, which the National Library of Viet Nam and national libraries in the ASEAN region agreed to perform such as selection of appropriate online content sources, ensuring the contributed materials could be displayed in different applications, supplying metadata as requested etc. to create an unified search to the rich cultural resources of all ASEAN National Libraries, providing more access to materials, introducing one’s country material to people of other countries, enhancing knowledge exchange and cultural understanding in the region.
