The Pacific Collection

The Pacific Collection is a special collection with a regional focus on Micronesia and the Pacific. The collection consists of approximately 7,500 monographs, a digitized photograph collection, over 350 serial holdings, academic journals with a Pacific regional focus, as well as local and regional newspapers both in print and microform, and an expansive video collection.

It also contains valuable artifacts from the pre-European Contact, Spanish, German, Japanese, World War II, and Trust Territory periods of the Northern Mariana Islands. In addition, it also contains cartographic materials of both current and antiquarian interest, and memorabilia.

As a valuable resource, the Pacific collection is largest, most comprehensive collection of it kind in the CNMI. The collection serves NMC students and faculty as well as local and international Pacific cultures enthusiasts and academic researchers. This is a closed stack collection. Materials may only be used onsite unless otherwise authorized by the Curator or Librarian and under special circumstances only, due to the unique and priceless contents of this collection.
