Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (PARADISEC)


With each passing year, analog media such as tapes are degrading, and becoming increasingly unplayable and irretrievable despite our best restoration efforts. PARADISEC are racing against time to locate, digitise, and secure these culturally significant records. The PARADISEC collection represents oral traditions, dictionaries, songs and texts from over 1,360 languages, largely from the linguistically and culturally rich region of the Pacific. See the catalog of this material (220 terabytes) here: .
