An index of articles from the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, Honolulu Advertiser, and Star Advertiser starting from 1989.
Hoʻolaupaʻi: Hawaiian Nūpepa Collection
A database of Hawaiian Language Newspapers printed from 1834-1948. One of the biggest strengths of this database is access to the full newspaper page. One of the limitations is only a small number of newspaper pages are full-text searchable.
A useful website aimed to foster greater interest in Hawaiian-language newspapers by featuring articles translated into English. Please note, the author of this website has noted that the translations are merely works in progress.
How Do I Access Newspapers?
WCC no longer has a Microfilm collection.
To view articles from the Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Star-Bulletin before you will need to go to the Hawaiʻi State Library or UH Mānoaʻs Hamilton Library.
