  • Changes to OneSearch Results December 24, 2023

    During the winter break, the UHM Library made a change to how OneSearch delivers search results to you. We changed the search results from its current "Expanded" mode to a more refined "Filtered" mode. For those who prefer the Expanded Search, the Filtered Search results can be changed to Expanded by clicking the "Expand My Results" toggle that will appear at the top of the search results on a desktop or laptop screen, or at the top of the Filter options when you click the Filter icon (shaped like a funnel). This change will only affect the "Everything" search scope, which is the default search scope. Searches using the "UHM Library" or "All UH Libraries" search scopes will be unaffected.

  • 200-year-old Japanese Whaling Scrolls Digitized July 7, 2023

    The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Library received two rare, and previously unknown, Japanese scrolls. They were donated by Deborah Rudolph to honor the memory of her late husband, John Harvard Hawley.

    The scrolls titled 鯨魚鑬笑録 (Geigyo ranshōroku), or “A simple overview of whaling,” were created in 1819 with the comprehensive depiction of the hunting, processing, and rendering of whales during the Edo period (1600-1868).
