we are not quite "Pacific", but in principle, this might interest some of us.

> We are currently collecting information about further such collections

> Please feel free to distribute this message.

> 2. Do you know of collections whose catalogs are not available through
> federated searches (that is, they are only available if you visit
> their website and not anywhere else on the web) and for which we could
> provide a reference to make it easier to find them?
> 3. Do you know of repositories of manuscripts that have received
> little attention from linguists but which are likely, in your opinion,
> to have linguistic records in them? These may include, for example,
> missionary archives or State administrative archives.
> 4. Please include your name and contact email so we can follow up with
> you if necessary (email addresses will not be added to any lists).
