Upcoming construction may limit access to H&P newspaper collection

The Hawaiian & Pacific Collections at UH-Manoa Hamilton Library are preparing for a construction project that will ultimately provide better shelving for our print newspaper collections. The construction will take place in our closed stacks area, but will require us to temporarily relocate our newspaper collections. Consequently, beginning in November 2014 portions of our newspaper collections may take longer than normal to retrieve for patrons, or may at times be unavailable altogether. Also beginning in November, we will be relocating boxed back-issues of newspapers into part of our reading room. The construction project is currently scheduled to be completed at the end of January, 2015, but this date is subject to change. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
