Pasifika collection at the library

The Albany campus library houses a research collection of Pasifika material. The Pasifika collection is on Level 3 and books can be identified by a frangipani label on the spine of the material. The collection holds books, print journals, and audiovisual material with Pasifika content.

Pacific Research and Policy Centre

The Pacific Research and Policy Centre is the Pasifika research knowledge hub for Massey University. It was established to give focus and new impetus to the already considerable research activity by Massey researchers in the Pacific.
