This blog will document the Pacific Collections Review project, an 18 month partnership project supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund which aims to reconnect dispersed Pacific collections held in museums across Scotland. The four core partner museums are National Museums Scotland, Aberdeen University Museums, Glasgow Life, and Perth Museum & Art Gallery. We aim to make the Pacific collections in Scotland more widely available in the UK, the Pacific, and worldwide. We hope to promote dialogue through regular updates from the project team, as well as guest posts. We welcome contribution and discussion.
You can find more details about the project on our website http://www.nms.ac.uk/collections__research/pacific_collections.aspx
The website will be progressively updated with research resources, descriptions of collections and information about different areas in the Pacific.
