Depending on your research, you may need to use one or more of the collections in the UHM Library. The Hamilton Library Business, Humanities & Social Sciences Collection covers art from around the world, emphasizing the United States and Europe. The Asia Collection and the Hawaiian & Pacific Collections also have significant amounts of material on the art of those geographic areas. The Jean Charlot Collection reflects the diverse interests of the artist, including Mexican art history, prints and printmaking, murals especially frescoes, and liturgical art.
