PMB finding aids

The Pacific Manuscripts Bureau has developed a number of finding aids to assist you with your research.

Member libraries

The Pacific Manuscript Bureau microfilms and audio recording collections are held in each of the Pacific research libraries (see list below) which sponsor the Bureau. If you can not access one of these libraries in person, contact your local library and try to arrange an inter-library loan.

Purchase PMB titles

Where access conditions permit, the Bureau can supply microfilm copies or digital images (PDF) of PMB titles scanned from the microfilms to individuals. Please contact the Bureau for more information.
