Oceania Databases

Bibliographical Database

This database contains information on literature on Oceania that has been listed in: Oceania Newsletter No.11/12, February/August 1993 - No. 107, September 2022. From 1993 backwards we are adding titles of articles and books that have appeared and were reviewed in journals that supply anthropological information on Oceania. 31,163 bibliographic descriptions available.

Literature on Asia is not included.

Cinematographical Database

This database contains information on films (mainly documentaries) on Oceania (without Australia and New Zealand) that has been collected by Saskia Goëken in pre-WWW and pre-DVD times: 1984-1986. The list of distributors is from that period too and may not be valid anymore. Purpose of the database is to save information on older films in the hope this will contribute to the saving of the films themselves. Many of the films are in the database 'Moving Images of the Pacific Islands' of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, but not all. Distributors may differ too.
