Aloha and welcome to the Hawaiian & Pacific Collections
The Hawaiian and Pacific Collections are internationally recognized research collections. All formats, languages and levels of treatment are collected. Many of the items in the collections are unique and irreplaceable. The Hawaiian and Pacific Collections include manuscripts and archives such as Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Association (HSPA) Plantation Archives, Dole Corporation Archives, and Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands Archives.
The Hawaiian and Pacific Collections Department (H&P) has its own reading room, reference service, circulation service and policies, and hours.
Most significantly, H&P keeps its materials in closed stacks, which means that any materials you need must be retrieved for you. Instructions on how to find and request H&P materials are provided on these pages.
