“Award-winning student lenses focus on rare Hamilton Library collections”

“Hamilton Library at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is home to a multitude of rare books, archival materials and special collections that attract researchers from around the world. So what better way to acquaint UH Mānoa students with these unique and valuable resources than to invite them to make videos about their favorite collections?”
