Hawaiian Journal of History online

The 2011 and 2012 issues of the Hawaiian Journal of History were recently uploaded to eVols, the UH-M library's digital repository of material that is produced outside of the University of Hawaii. (The library also hosts a second repository, Scholarspace, specifically for material produced by the UH community.) All volumes of the Hawaiian Journal of History, from vol. 1 (1967) through vol. 46 (2012) are freely available for download (and also full-text searchable) at http://evols.library.manoa.hawaii.edu/handle/10524/9 .

Digitizing Back Issues of Ka Leo

The issues, which cover the years 1922-1949, are freely available via Scholarspace, the library's open-access digital repository. The year's 1924 and 1925 have not yet been digitized; all other digital versions can be found at http://scholarspace.manoa.hawaii.edu/handle/10125/16400

Construction Update: Hawaiian and Pacific Temporary Reference Desk Now Open

The Hawaiian and Pacific Collections' temporary reference desk has now opened in Hamilton Library's Government Documents reading room. Collection librarians will be providing reference from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, closed Saturday and Sunday. We will continue to provide reference service at this desk until construction is completed. During open hours, we will be answering our reference telephone line at (808) 956-8264. Otherwise, the best way to reach the collections as a whole is via email: hawnpac@hawaii.edu. Please note that while we have transferred our reference collection downstairs, we do not have access to the vast majority of our Hawaiian and Pacific materials housed on the fifth floor, and therefore our ability to answer questions will in some cases be limited.
