How great is the headdress this absolutely beautiful Samoan girl is wearing? We chose this to be this week's image to highlight the official launch of the UC Pasifika Strategy this Thursday evening (27th of November). Appropriately, the image comes from the John Macmillan Brown Collection who's interest in the Pacific led to the development of the Macmillan Brown Centre for Pacific Studies. Take a look at Kā Kohika for lots more images of the Pacific's past.

in particular laptops, cellphones, wallets and backpacks. Unattended belongings attract thieves, and while many believe the risk to be small, it is real and such a loss can be devastating. Even for short trips to the copier, printer, or toilets, take them with you or have a friend sitting next to you watch them while you're gone. The library is not responsible for the loss of personal belongings.
