Hawaii Voyager Library

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.
