About the Library

Gregg M. Sinclair Library

When the Gregg M. Sinclair Library opened its doors in 1956, it was one of the largest open-stack university libraries in the United States. The library, designed by Lemmon, Freeth & Haines, which has since evolved into the present Architects Hawai'i, was dedicated to former university president Gregg M. Sinclair (1942-1955) on May 4, 1956.

Today the Library is a popular destination for UH students, faculty, and staff where they can find videos, CDs, DVDs, audiocassettes, phonodiscs, other media, and course reserve services.  There is wireless access on every floor with ample and varied study space available throughout the building. The library partners with Student Success Center and other student-based service programs.
