PARBICA 15 provides an opportunity for the archivists and records managers of the Pacific Islands region, Australia and New Zealand to renew professional contacts and share experiences with others who often work in isolation. This year’s theme is: “Leading Archives into the Digital Age: Personal, Professional, Institutional.”
If you regularly follow this blog, you may recall that PARBICA 14 was held in Apia, Samoa, in 2011. Feel free to read our report on this conference.

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.
