Limited Capacity seats available

The role of Hawaiian & Pacific Collections Librarians spans beyond the subjects of those collections. In addition to being subject experts, Hawaiian & Pacific Collections Librarians are woven into their libraries and campuses in ways that are unique to their position, collections and patrons served. Join us, a group of Hawaiian & Pacific Collections Librarians from academic institutions across Hawaiʻi, as we 1) discuss the significant activities of our positions and the challenges and opportunities we face, 2) examine the value of our positions, and 3) advocate for increased institutionalization of Hawaiian & Pacific Collections Librarians.
