Each year, librarians in the Pacific Collection travel to one of the three cultural regions of the Pacific (Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia) on extended acquisitions trips. These trips multi-island trips (which are funded by a federal Title VI grant administered by the Center for Pacific Islands Studies) serve a variety of purposes, from ensuring that our Pacific Collection holdings are complete and up-to-date, to maintaining the collection's strong ties to publishers, librarians and archivists throughout the region.
During a recent acquisitions trip to Guam, Pacific Specialist Librarian Eleanor Kleiber paid a visit to the Glimpses of Guam offices to check up on various items produced by the publishing company. Little did she know that she would subsequently become part of the news cycle, as her visit was written up in Guam Business Magazine.
