"Charting the Land on the Ocean"

The University of Otago is currently hosting Charting the Land on the Ocean: Pacific Exploration, 1520-1876, an exhibit that features books and maps found in various of its campus library collections. The exhibit also includes an online component with samples of these same items, along with historical documentation.

Many of these works can also be found in various forms (either the original publications, or facsimile copies) in the UH-Manoa Library's Hawaiian and Pacific Collections. Selected images from various rare materials in the Hawaiian and Pacific Collections are also available via this recently launched online collection: http://digicoll.manoa.hawaii.edu/pacific/
