Founded in 1935 by a gathering of geographers including graduate students and faculty from universities, normal schools, and junior colleges, the Association of Pacific Coast Geographers has a long and rich history promoting geographical education, research, and knowledge. Members gather at its annual meetings for social and intellectual interaction. They receive the annual Yearbook, first printed in 1935, that includes abstracts of papers from the meetings and a number of full-length peer-reviewed articles. The Yearbook is now part of Project MUSE, a widely used academic database that provides full-text coverage for over 400 journals. We thank the Yearbook's publisher, the University of Hawai'i Press, for helping make this possible. Members also receive the bi-annual newsletter Pacifica. Since 1952 the APCG has also been the Pacific Coast Regional Division of the Association of American Geographers, serving AK, AZ, CA, HI, ID, NV, OR, WA, BC, and YT.

The Yearbook, the scholarly journal of the APCG, has gone electronic!
The Yearbook is now part of Project MUSE, a widely used scholarly database that provides full-text coverage for over 400 journals. If the Yearbook of the APCG is not yet listed directly in your university's online catalog, you should be able to access it through Project MUSE, assuming your university subscribes to Project MUSE. If your campus has something like "Databases A-Z," click on "P" to find Project MUSE, which, when opened, lists the Yearbook. For individual members not affiliated with a subscribing university and for the public, this issue of the Yearbook can be found at
