UHM Preservation Week

April 23, 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Hamilton Library Lobby

As spring cleaning is underway, many in the university community will contemplate how to preserve important archival and library materials.

Joining hundreds of libraries, archives and museums across the country, Hamilton Library will provide information and expertise to patrons on how to preserve books, scrapbooks, photos, family records and much more.

Preservation Week activities in Hawaiʻi have been spearheaded by graduate students in the Library and Information Science Program at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The theme of Preservation Week @ Hamilton Library is “Pass It On,” and we will offer a series of special programs Tuesday, April 23 through Saturday, April 27 from 12:00-2:00 pm, in the first floor lobby. Activities include:

  1. Paper and Book Clinic ~
    Staff, faculty, students and community patrons are invited to bring a treasure to Hamilton Library for assessment by the staff of the Preservation Department, assisted by conservation students. Although no monetary appraisals will be given, patrons can learn how to handle and house materials of personal and professional value.
  2. Video Clips by Dog Bite Productions ~
    Demonstrating the proper methods of handling circulating books.
  3. Multi-lingual Preservation Posters ~
    Explaining the responsibility we all have in respectfully caring for the library collections we are privileged to borrow, in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi, Tagalog, Japanese, Samoan, Tongan, Korean and English.

Preservation Week @ Hamilton Library is a collaborative effort supported by the American Library Association, Library of Congress, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Library, and the UH Library and Information Science Program.
