The Library is offering laptops for checkout to WCC students for the Spring 2021 semester.
Laptops are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. A variety of laptops are available and the library staff will determine which device best suits your computing needs.
Students will need to schedule an appointment to pick-up a laptop and should call (808) 235-7436 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Laptop appointments will be scheduled between 9AM and 4PM, Monday through Friday.
If you have questions about using your computer or programs, call the WCC Computing Services Helpline at 808-235-7314 or the 24/7 UH System Information Technology Services Help Desk at 808-956-8883.
Access to online library resources is available 24/7 through the Library homepage. The WCC Library provides seamless access to 216,000 e-books, more than 55,000 e-journals, 50+ library research databases, and thousands of streaming videos. Reach out to our librarians via telephone, text, email, or library chat for assistance in navigating these e-resources.
The WCC library offers touchless checkout & pickup of books and DVDs, as well as partial digitization (scanning) of pages or chapters from books.
Log in to the Library Catalog to place a request for a locker checkout (Request This Copy) or to Request Partial Digital Scan. Note: You aren’t permitted to borrow a library book if it’s available from HathiTrust (due to copyright restrictions), but you can still request a partial digital scan.
Contact a WCC librarian via phone, text, email, or chat. The librarian will work with you to determine if digitization or pickup is best.
Pickup Lockers are to the left of the library's main doors.
The library staff will tell you or email you a locker number. To open your designated locker:
If you're a WCC student needing access to items in the Course Reserves collection, please contact the library via phone (808-235-7436) or email (email@example.com).
Note: If you are isolating and cannot safely return items to the library by their due date, please call 235-7440.
Returned Item Quarantine: Returned items are quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours before being checked in, so it will be a few days before you see returns reflected on your library account. You will not be charged fines or fees for the time your returned items remain in quarantine.
Laptops & Equipment: To return a laptop, calculator, or other equipment, please call 235-7436 to schedule a return appointment.
Books and DVDs: Return these to the book drop near the top of the stairs by the front entrance. You may also return these items to the book drop at any other UH campus library.
If a UH library owns a physical copy of a book that's also in HathiTrust, the catalog will show a link to it.
Click on “Full Text may be available at HathiTrust” and sign in with your UH username and password if prompted.
This takes you to the book’s description in the HathiTrust catalog.
Click the “Temporary access” link, then click the “Check Out” button.
Note: You aren’t permitted to borrow the physical copy of a library book if it’s available from HathiTrust (due to copyright restrictions), but you can still request a partial digital scan.
You can pay outstanding fines & fees by credit card over the phone, or by mailing or taking a check to the UH Manoa Hamilton Library.
Call the UH Mānoa Hamilton Library Business Office at 808-956-7203 between 9-12 or 1-4, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).
