In Person

The Jean Charlot Collection is located on the 5th floor of the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s Hamilton Library. Reference hours are on Tuesday from 1:00 to 4:00 and Thursday from 9:00 to noon. Hours may change each semester. Access to the Archive of Hawaii Artists & Architects Collections, class visits, tours and additional reference hours are encouraged Monday through Friday, by appointment.


Reference inquiries can be made by email or phone 808-956-2849. Content from the collection brochure is available in a LibGuide. There are a few selections from the Jean Charlot Collection posted online (see Digital Images) and the book collections can be searched through the library’s OneSearch system. The library has adopted ArchivesSpace for archival collections and the Jean Charlot Collection will continue expanding collection level descriptions for Charlot as well as other Hawaii artists and architects, searchable by name (for best results, select the item with the red Collection marker).
