Welcome to the Pacific Manuscripts Bureau

The Pacific Manuscripts Bureau copies archives, manuscripts and rare printed material relating to the Pacific Islands. The aim of the Bureau is to help with long-term preservation of the documentary heritage of the Pacific Islands and to make it accessible.

The Pacific Manuscripts Bureau microfilm collection is the most extensive collection of non-government primary documentation on the Pacific Islands available to researchers.

The Pacific Manuscripts Bureau welcomes suggestions for copying projects, particularly when the material is in danger of loss or destruction.
