Emeriti Faculty

Emeritus Faculty members are granted library privileges after they have received their official appointment by the Board of Regents. Emeriti faculty must register their status with the library and Information Technology Services (ITS) for continued access to borrowing material and access to the Library’s E-resources. The library verifies an individual’s emeritus status using the list of emeriti as found in the official University of Hawaii at Manoa Catalog: If an individual is not found on the list of emeriti faculty, an official letter conferring emeritus status from the department chair including the UH Username and ID number of the faculty must be provided to the library’s circulation department for registration. Please note that although privileges are accorded for a lifetime, there are periodic re-registration processes in order to keep the library emeriti accounts active. For any questions or concerns, please contact the Hamilton Library Circulation Office by phone at (808)956-7203 or by email to
