The University of Hawai‘i-Mānoa Library recently coordinated the purchase of a subscription to Ethnographic Video Online, which provides faculty, staff and students throughout the UH system with online access to over 1,300 hours of streaming video, including ethnographic films, documentaries, feature films and previously unpublished fieldwork. The collection includes the work of a number of UH faculty members, as well as several highly regarded Hawai'i- and Pacific-based filmmakers, including (among many others) Vilsoni Hereniko, Eddie and Myrna Kamae, Tom Coffman, Stephanie J. Castillo, Peter Rockford Espiritu, Puhipau, Wendy Arbeit. In addition to searching out specific titles, users can browse in a variety of ways, including by Cultural Group, Places Discussed, and People Discussed. The purchase of this collection was made possible in part by a generous donation from Eddie and Myrna Kamae’s Hawaiian Legacy Foundation. Special thanks also go to Kris Anderson, who recently left UH-M Library for a position as director of the John A. Burns School of Medicine’s Health Sciences Library: Kris was responsible for working with all of the system libraries in coordinating the purchase. UH-Mānoa faculty, students and staff can access Ethnographic Video Online from this link: http://micro189.lib3.
