Pacific And Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (PARADISEC): A facility for digital conservation and access for endangered materials from the Pacific region, defined broadly to include Oceania and East and Southeast Asia. At present no such facility exists, and our research group is examining feasible models to ensure that the archive can provide access to interested communities, and conforms to emerging international standards for digital archiving. In 2003 we aim to establish a framework for accessioning, cataloguing, and digitizing audio, text and visual material, and preserving digital copies. The primary focus of this initial stage is safe preservation of material that would otherwise be lost, especially field tapes from the 1950s and 1960s.
