The British Columbia Digital Library

International Collections: Pacific Ocean

The focus of this set of links is on collections of electronic texts (not individual titles) preserved through libraries, archives, museums and corporate or private initiatives. Listings here are therefore primarily for the written word as expressed in manuscripts, books and periodicals, including newspapers. A few non-book digital library collections are included. Readers wishing further leads to non-book digital content should consult one of the directories or guides.

Unless indicated, access to these Web sites is free and open to the general public.

This section covers Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Ocean Islands, but excludes Hawaii and Asian island nations such as Japan and the Phillipines. See also Digital Collections by Subject.
