New digital resource: Films On Demand

The UH-M Library is now subscribing to "Films On Demand," which provides streaming access to educational videos in the humanities, social and natural sciences, business and health. The site allows searching for entire films or clips within films, and includes a fair amount of Hawai'i- and Pacific-related content. Films include: Made in Taiwan: Genes, Culture, and the Peopling of the South Pacific (a documentary featuring Nathan Rarere and Oscar Kightley, pictured here); Margaret Mead: Coming of Age (on Mead's life and work); The Empire Strikes Back (on various creole and pidgin English languages, including those of Melanesia in general and Papua New Guinea in particular); Where's the Catch: Pacific Fishing in Crisis and others. This is a subscription database, so access is limited to UH-Manoa students, faculty and staff. To reach the log-in portal, click here.
