Students of the School of Governance, Development and International Affairs of the University of the South Pacific Post Graduate Studies have lauded the services of the National Archives of Fiji.

The visit to the National Archives was to assist students in understanding the functions of the Department and the type of primary and secondary resources available.

In an organised tour, the students were given an overview of access levels for both closed and open records and the volume of the records in the archives’ holdings.

Sela Epeli, a Post Graduate Diploma student that was part of the group, shared on her view of the tour.

“The whole purpose of coming to this organisation is my interest in carrying out a family trace of my grandfather who was a British Official sent to Rotuma and finding out what happened to him when he went back to England,” Mr Epeli said.

“The tour today has been very helpful. I enjoyed visiting all the sections.

“For me the library and archives admin sections were the most interesting for me. I got a lot of information on the processes I will go through and what I will need for my research.

“The National Archives is a treasure trove just waiting to be discovered.”

A total of 12 students from the School of Governance, Development and International Affairs of the USP Post Graduate Studies visited NAF. DEPTFO news
