Melanesian Studies

This site is intended to provide an overview of library materials, both published and unpublished, pertinent to the study of Melanesia. UCSD's collection strengths for this area include anthropology, European voyages of exploration and research, archaeology, linguistics, and history. A special emphasis is placed on collecting primary source materials: anthropologists' fieldnotes, government patrol reports, microfilms of mission records, firsthand accounts of travelers, and newspapers from the region, etc. The collection also includes many dissertations and theses.
