I just added another favorite link to the “Sites We Like” section. This is the Cook Islands Library and Museum Society blog which will help keep us up-to-date on library happenings, as well as cultural information regarding Rarotonga and the rest of the Cook Islands.
This library holds a special place with me, as it was here where I did my first volunteer trip.
When you get some free time, check out their blog!
Island Culture Archival Support (ICAS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of records pertaining to the cultural identity of island peoples in Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia whose national and public archives, libraries, cultural centers, and business organizations are underprivileged, underfunded, and understaffed.
The specific purpose for which this nonprofit corporation was formed is to support the needs of these South Pacific cultural heritage institutions by helping to preserve and make accessible records created for business, accountability or cultural purposes. The organization will endeavor to add value by providing resources or volunteers to advise, train, and work among island residents to support their efforts in building their future and preserving their collective memory through the use of modern archival techniques.
