Digitized Media at USP

The Multimedia Unit in the Center for Flexible Learning at the University of South Pacific (USP) has taken up the task of digitizing media on relevant Pacific Islands culture. Although the unit is in its infancy, they have already posted a few projects. Some notable videos include: “The Atiuan Canoe Making” from the Cook Islands, and “Yam Gardening” from Tonga. Feel free to visit their site to view more online videos. 

I will place the site on our Links That We Like section of the blog under the “Pacific Islands Culture Media” tab.

Don’t forget to check the USP site often for new posts!

About islandculturearchivalsupport

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.
