CPIS Occasional Papers

The Occasional Papers include seminar papers, conference proceedings, topical studies, and edited collections. Most of them are now available as PDFs via ScholarSpace, the digital institutional archive at the University of Hawai'i's Hamilton Library.

Occasional Papers 30, 34, 38, and 41 were editions of Moving Images of the Pacific Islands, a guide to films and videos, which is now available as a database on this website.

A limited number of print copies of the titles marked with an asterisk are still available at a nominal fee.
