Richard F. Taitano 密克罗尼西亚地区研究中心 was formally created in 1967 关岛公法第. 9-106. This Public Law was introduced by Guam Congressman Richard Flores Taitano and the 研究 Center was named after him on its Thirtieth Anniversary in 1997.
The legislative creation of MARC was the result of a gathering together of scholars UOG前主席Dr. 安东尼奥C. Yamashita and a transfer of funding for the enterprise by former Governor Manual F. Guerrero.
This Center contains over 40,000 volumes of resource materials on Guam and Micronesia, and 800 unpublished theses and dissertations. 它包含了许多早期的出版物 比如关岛记录仪.
