Sinclair Library's Video Reformatting Project

Digitized videos are now available online via links in the Voyager catalog. A UH username and password are necessary for accessing the videos. See for more information

Sinclair Library Hawaiian Music Digitization

In 2002, the library acquired the Hawaiian music collection of Dirk Vogel who had been collecting Hawaiian music since the 1920s. The collection contains 6,000 78s, 2,650 LPs, 900 45s and thousands of other items. Also in 2002, the Library received a bequest of 2,533 Hawaiian music recordings from the estate of James Grant Cathro of Glasgow, Scotland, who died in 1999. The collection contains 2,056 phonodiscs (33-1/3, 45 and 78 RPM speeds); 236 cassettes and various other recordings.
The site is intended to show the possibilities for presenting sound, sheet music, images, and text of lyrics in an online searchable database.
