The Baobab Archives, located on Manda, were a vast repository of knowledge amassed from all over the galaxy.


Owned by a prestigious merchant family (the Baobabs), the Archives contained information on galactic history, planets, languages, cultures, and hyperspace lanes. Numerous scientists, anthropologists, and philologists also found their way into the Archives' employ; in short, the Baobabs had established a group of scholarly minds as well respected as any comparable research foundation.

In 520 BBY, the Ark of Baron Auletphant—lost in space for ten millennia—became part of the Archives.[1]

Among the treasures there was the only surviving example of the epic poem Dha Werda Verda, discovered by Mungo Baobab.

For numerous years, the Chief Philologist and head of the Baobab Archives was Ebenn Q3 Baobab. Through his efforts in this organization, the Baobab family was able to establish such institutions as the Baobab Archives Cultural Phenomenon Study Center, the Baobab Museum of Science, the Baobab Work Placement Bureau, the Baobab School of Speed-Learning, and the Baobab HoloNet.

Atour Riten did his apprenticeship at the Baobab Archives.
