Hawaiian Collection Online Indexes

Over the years, the Hawaiian and Pacific Collections have produced numerous indexes and bibliographies to aid in researching specific topics. We have also received other such works from a variety of researchers and organizations. For several months now, Hawaiian Collection librarian Dore Minatodani has been transferring certain of these indexes into fully searchable, online research tools. Among others, these include: The first two volumes (Sept. 1922 to May 1924) of Ka Leo o Hawaii, the University's student newspaper; Amy K. Stillman's Hawaiian Chants: An Index of Published Sources and Audio Recordings and Hawaiian Songs: An Index of Published Songbooks and Helen Chapin's Guide to Newspapers of Hawai'i, 1834-2000. For a more complete listing of useful Hawai'i-related databases and indexes (which is not limited to tools produced by our library), see the Hawaiian Collection website.
