How do you get a book once you find a reference to it in the catalog?
If it's supposed to be at UHM:
If its location is Hamilton Hawaiian or Hamilton Pacific, use the Get This Item link in Voyager to request that it be brought out for you.
Otherwise, go to the library and get it. (Actually, you can use the Get This Item/Hold or Transfer option to ask us to pull it from the shelf for you, but it takes a day or so. Pick up non-Hawn/Pac books at the main circulation desk on the first floor.)
If it's not on the shelf, ask someone to help you find it.
Call Number: Hamilton & Hamilton Hawaiian E184 .P25 P34 2002
Although Pacific history, society, and culture have been the subjects of much scholarly research and writing, the lives of Pacific Islanders in the diaspora (particularly in the U.S.) have received far less attention. The contributors to this volume of articles and essays compiled by the Pacific Islander Americans Research Project hope to rectify this oversight.
How did we get here? Three-and-a-half-day school weeks. Prisoners farmed out to the mainland. Tent camps for the migratory homeless. The steady degradation of already degraded land. The contributors to The Value of Hawaiʻi outline the origins of our current state, and offer points of departure for a Hawaiʻi-wide debate on our future. The brief essays address a wide range of topics-Education, the Environment, Hawaiian Issues, Tourism, the Arts, Political Culture, Law, Labor, the Military, Transportation, Homelessness, and many more-but the contributors share a belief that taking stock of where we are right now, what we need to remember, and what we need to preserve and to change, is the challenge that all of us must face now.
