Hawaiian Waters – New Digital Collection

6 June 2011

Below is an announcement from the UHM Library’s Head of Desktop Network Services about a newly available collection of digitized historical publications on water resources and water rights. These are mostly government publications and focus on the time periods of the kingdom and republic. I think that some of you will find this material fascinating and useful.

In September 2010 the GWLA Board approved the University of Hawaii at Manoa Library Opportunity Fund request in the amount of $3600 to digitize Hawaii historical water materials.

We are pleased to announce that the first 33 titles processed via the
grant are now available in our eVols digital collection repository:

Mahalo to Beth Tillinghast and Jodie Mattos, project coordinators; Karen Brown and Alice Kim, project assistants; Daniel Ishimitsu, Dspace programmer.  Special thanks to GWLA for their financial support.
