UH Mānoa’s Hamilton Library is scheduled for an extensive, 8-month-or-longer construction project to update the air conditioning. This project will impact different floors and sections of the Library at various times affecting both access to collections and library services. Currently, the project is expected to begin in late 2012, and continue through the summer of 2013.
Some or all materials in collections located in various parts of Hamilton Library (Asia, Business, Humanities and Social Sciences, Jean Charlot, Hawaiian and Pacific, and Northeast Asia) will be unavailable at different times for a month or more at a time. Reference and instructional services will be interrupted.
The fourth and fifth floors of the Diamond Head Tower of Hamilton may be closed for six weeks or more during the summer of 2013, and the reading rooms of the Asia Collection and the Hawaiian & Pacific Collections will be closed during that time. Reference service and instruction related to these collections will be limited during this period.
Those expecting to teach a Spring or Summer course in 2013 that will require access to collections are asked to contact the appropriate collection to discuss their class and research or library assignments.
Those working on research or writing projects for which they will need access to the collections, please contact the Library as soon as possible.
Those planning to travel to Honolulu for research at the Library, please contact the Library well in advance.
