The advent of summer (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least) often brings visiting researchers to the Hawaiian and Pacific Collections. If you are planning a research trip to our collections, please make note of the fact that we will be closed on Sundays through August 29, 2010. Other essential information can be found on the library's Visitor Services page.
Hawai'i's newspaper publishing history dates back to 1834. Between that date and the year 2000, more than 1,200 distinct titles were published in the Islands. More and more newspapers are finding their way online in digital form, but just as many remain available only in print. Hawai'i Specialist librarian Dore Minatodani has created an online Library Guide to help navigate the many resources available for researching within Island newspapers. You can find that guide by clicking here. For more on researching in Hawai'i newspapers, see also our previous blog entries on the subject, by clicking here and here and also here.
The Hawaiian & Pacific Collections are located on the fifth floor of Hamilton Library, on the campus of University of Hawaii-Manoa.
