A Report on Libraries in the Pacific Islands: An Impression.
Jackson, Miles M.
A five week trip to study library and information services in the South Pacific included visits to American Samoa, Fiji, New Zealand, New Guinea, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam. This report provides information on each country's library services, structure and organization, staffing, collections, facilities, and any existing librarianship training programs. In general, the countries are making slow progress towards developing library services; however, there is noticeable progress at the University of South Pacific, University of Papua (New Guinea), and the Papua, New Guinea University of Technology. The most urgent needs identified by the study are more trained librarians, greater financial support, and sympathy from government leaders. (Author/JBF)
