Purpose of the Pacific guides

The Pacific guides are designed to assist you with your Pacific research endeavours, offering valuable resources to support your assignments and postgraduate research. The guides provide a fundamental resource for Pacific research, featuring a curated selection of recommended texts, articles, databases and electronic materials organised around Pacific themes. Since this guide serves as a starting point for research, we encourage you to enhance your research by using the Library Catalogue, where you can access a comprehensive range of resources related to Pacific Studies at Waipapa Taumata Rau.
