Online Bibliographies

(Mouse over link for description of contents. Links are to PDF documents.) Note: The Pacific Collection also holds print bibliographies for virtually every Pacific country and subject -- most are not available to read online, but all are cataloged in Voyager.

A Note About Hawaiian & Pacific Photo Collections

Only a fraction of all the images held in the Hawaiian and Pacific Collections have been digitized. To browse a list of all Pacific-related photo collections in Hamilton Library, type PHOTOGRAPH P in the window below; to browse all Hawai'i-related photo collections, type PHOTOGRAPH H -- these searches will run in Voyager; all the search results are for items in Hawaiian and Pacific Collections; to view them in the library, use the same "Get This Item" request you would for a book or other item. (If a specific collection has been digitized, the Voyager record will have a link to the online images.)


Digital Repositories

Digital repositories house published and unpublished material that has been digitized and made available by the UH-Mānoa Library. The Library currently has two digital repositories, ScholarSpace and eVols -- Scholarspace houses material produced by scholars affiliated with the University of Hawaiʻi; eVols houses material that has been digitized by the Library, but was produced by authors outside of the UH system. Some (but not all) of the material in these repositories can be found by searching the Voyager catalog; but for the most part, you need to search within the repositories themselves to see what's there.
