WCC Library Hawaiʻi Collection: Using the Room

This guide explains how to use the Hawaiʻi Collection and what resources are available.

Hawaiʻi Collection Policy

The Hawaiʻi Collection contains rare, out-of-print, and hard to obtain materials which must be protected from theft and damage.  The Hawaiʻi Collection Room is open only during posted hours and to visitors by advanced appointment. 

  • Visitors must leave all purses, backpacks, and other bags outside the room. Only paper, pencils, and electronic devices are allowed in the room.
  • A scanner and a copier are available in the room.

Hawaiʻi Collection items may be requested at the Circulation Services Desk.

  • Items will be retrieved from the collection as staff is available. Every effort will be made to retrieve materials on demand, however, this will not always be possible. It is recommended that users request materials one business day in advance.
  • Windward Community College students and staff must present a current Windward Community College ID or other valid ID to check out materials. When a second copy is available, the item may be borrowed for the designated loan period.
  • Students and faculty of other UH campuses must use the materials in the library. They must present a current UH ID card or other valid picture ID in order to check out materials from the Hawaiʻi Collection Room.
  • Community members must use the materials in the library. They must have a valid University of Hawaiʻi Library Community Card and a picture ID in order to check out materials from the Hawaiʻi Collection Room.
