The University of Hawaiʻi Library is home to numerous unique collections that illuminate aspects of the history, arts, languages & literature, politics & society, law, economy, geography, medicine, botany, environment, and various other fields of the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and technology relating to the peoples and countries across the globe. The Library held in the academic year of 2018-19 a video-shorts competition, for which students of any department, discipline, or field of study on the UH Mānoa campus were invited to create original videos using the Library’s collections. Twenty-one student teams indicated their intent to compete during the registration period (Nov 2018 – Feb 2019), and nine submissions were made to be considered for awards: $500 for the first place, $200 for the second place, and $100 for the third place. It is a pleasure to screen the nine entries, and to announce the winners during the Undergraduate Showcase Event on Friday, May 3, at 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM. Please join us!
