Library resources for course assignments

Using OneSearch Manoa

OneSearch Manoa searches the UH Voyager Catalog plus a huge index of electronic academic journals on most topics. It does not search all of the Library's databases and indexes. OneSearch is huge, but you may need to use other specialized databases to find additional subject-specific resources. The OneSearch Manoa guide explains more about how to use OneSearch Manoa.


Finding Books (and More) at UH Manoa Library


Hawaii Voyager Banner.

Hawaii Voyager | Search Guide (PDF)

Use Hawaii Voyager to find both print and electronic forms of books, journals, videos, and more in the UH System libraries.

Use the Get This Item link in the upper right side of the item record to transfer a book to you from another UH System library; to recall a checked out book; or, to use an item in the Hawaiian, Pacific, or Special Research Collections.

Do not use Hawaii Voyager to find specific journal articles on a topic. Go to Finding Journal Articles for links to those tools.
