Pacific Research Archives

The Pacific Research Archives (PRA) at The Australian National University is the premier Australian centre for research and teaching resources on the Pacific.

The Pacific Research Archives collects, preserves and provides access to unpublished and published research material from and about the Pacific Islands including records of companies and trade unions which operated in the Pacific and records of anthropologists, linguists, geographers and historians who lived and worked in the Pacific. Collecting by the Pacific Research Archives is guided by its Collecting Policy.

Information about the series of records held by the Pacific Research Archives is accessible through the database and a number of finding aids about the collection have been produced.

The PRA, part of the ANU Archives, collaborates with the ANU Library, the Pacific Manuscripts Bureau, the National Library of Australia and the National Archives of Australia to develop the Pacific resources at ANU.
