Library Closed Between Semesters

To:  UHM Campus Community

From:  Office of the University Librarian

Subject:  Suspension of Services during the Winter Interim

This message is intended for University of Hawaii at Manoa students, faculty, staff, and others who are planning to visit the University of Hawaii at Manoa in the coming months.

Due to a budget shortfall the Library will be closed as follows during the Winter Interim:

  • Hamilton Library will be closed December 20, 2009 – January 10, 2010.  Hamilton is currently closed Saturdays this Fall Semester.
  • Sinclair Library will be closed December 20 – January 3 with limited services available January 4-10.

During these periods when the Library is closed, services will be unavailable, including borrowing, delivery, interlibrary loan, and telephone inquiries. Library faculty will respond to e-mail information queries as time allows. Please return books prior to end of semester, but books may be returned to the book return bins during the Interim. The Hawaii Voyager library catalog and some electronic resources will also be unavailable during part of the Interim for scheduled maintenance to servers.

This closure will affect interlibrary loan requests in particular.  There may be a several-week delay in fulfilling interlibrary loan requests submitted.  If you have interlibrary loan requests that need to be filled before the Winter Interim or during the first few weeks of Spring Semester, please make these requests as soon as possible.
