Ethnic Studies/Anthropology 486: Peoples of Hawaii: Books

Accessing Library Materials

Search OneSearch for books, journal articles, and other items. If you find a book you want to access or check out, click the "Sign In" link and log in with your UH username and password. Click the "Request Specific Copy" and select the copy in the Hawaiian Collection that can be borrowed (avoid copy that says Reference or Library Use Only) or the Hamilton copy. Wait for an email message that the book is available to be picked up at the Hawaiian & Pacific Collections circulation counter. If there is only one copy of the item in the Hawaiian Collection, it cannot be borrowed but you can use the item in the reading room.

If you visit Hamilton Library, you must show your UH ID to gain entry to the library. You must also wear a face mask.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly at . I'm happy to help.
