Okinawan Studies Library Guide (LibGuides) has been developed to support your research on Okinawa & Ryukyus / 沖縄・琉球 at the UHM Library. Sources with "UHM Only" notation means that you need to log in the UHM Library system with your UHM username and password to use the sources. Hope you will find the information of a wide range of resources on Okinawa/Ryukyus helpful.
To use the Okinawa Special Collection, please make an appointment with Okinawa Studies Librarian by email. At least 2-week advance notice is needed.
