I think the time is is ripe for 'someone' or all interested to join in a letter writing campaign. Aside from local newspapers in the area which seem obvious forums, & various ministers etc, I would like to propose to all that they check through their personal libraries and find and contact the authors of studies, articles, books etc who have depended on Caribbean held archives to make their studies possible. From a purely personal perspective, beside the tremendous inconvienience & expense of getting to a will or deed in Barbados [Grenada, St Vincent, Bequia etc etc etc] for personal research, I believe that the difficulty of access severely limits the number of scholarly researchers from attempting work on the area, which in turn limits the knowledge of the extent of Caribbean historic, cultural, policy, financial [+++++] influence, which for a significant period of time was the driving engine in the then global economy, to a quick blurb on triangular trade in some World Cultures textbook.

So dig out your books, journals, website articles; spend a little time digging up email adresses for the authors from university websites etc. & write.

PS - dear administrator - good mention on Facebook. Not to drive someone to an alternate site, but a facebook page devoted to CHPI could reach a pretty wide audience. [then you can drive them here]
