Happy New Year!
I thought I’d start the new year off with some good news! Here is a fairly recent pictorial update on the construction of the new National Library and National Archives building in Port Vila, Vanuatu. As you can see, progress is coming along quite nicely. The building is slated to be finished by September 2013.

Thanks to Augustine Tevimule, Archivist Assistant, for providing the pictures. Hope to see more soon!
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.
