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.
TRAVEL GRANT PROGRAM
The Harvard-Yenching Library is pleased to announce its Travel Grant Program for the 2019-2020 academic year. The purpose of the grant is to assist scholars from outside the Boston metropolitan area in their use of the Harvard-Yenching Library’s collections for research. There will be nineteen grants of $600 each (seven in Chinese studies, seven in Japanese studies, and five in Korean studies) to be awarded on a merit basis to faculty members and to graduate students engaged in dissertation research. Independent scholars are also welcome to the program. Priority consideration will be given to those at institutions where there are no or few library resources in the East Asian languages and no major East Asian library collections are available nearby. Please note that the awards must be used by September 30, 2020.
