Library Closed 12/21/2009 - 1/3/2010

The Health Sciences Library will be closed from Monday, Dec. 21- Sunday, Jan. 3, 2010, because the entire Medical Education Building will be closed as a part of the UH Manoa Green Days Initiative. Hamilton and Sinclair Libraries will also be closed during this time, as all UH System libraries will be.

Access to Online Resources
During the interim access to online resources should be available. On Tuesday, Dec. 22, the Voyager online catalog will be down while equipment is being moved but this should not affect e-journals, PubMed, MDConsult, etc.

Access to Study Space
Medical students will have access to the Ancillary Building Study space--normal MEB building hours are to be observed.

Hawaii Medical Library (547-4300) will be open Mon, 12/21-Thurs, 12/24/09, 9am - 4pm.

Beginning at 12 noon on Friday, 12/18/09, we will allow the checking out of Reserve Books for the two week break. They will be due on Monday, Jan. 4, by 10 a.m. with no exceptions. If you misplace any library book during the break, you will be charged for a replacement copy. There will be the same three-book limit.

Online Journals Available while Library Catalog Down on 12/22

The previous message regarding the Library System outage on December 22, 2009 was erroneous.

The online journals and databases WILL BE available on December 22, 2009. Only the Voyager Library Catalog (where you search for books and journals on the library shelves) will be unavailable from approximately 6am to 6pm on 12/22.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Library Book Transfers Inactivated Until January

Because all UH System Libraries will be closed during the Winter Interim, book transfers and recalls have been temporarily turned off from December 7, 2009 until Jan 4, 2010. This is the online process within the Voyager Catalog that allows you to request a book to be transferred from one UH library to another.

This service was turned off now in order to allow sufficient time for books in transit to reach the destination library in a timely fashion. We wanted to be sure that the requester has enough time to pick up the book before the library closes.

Remember that that you can go directly to any UH library and check out books yourself between now and when the library closes for the break. Be sure to check the library hours before going.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
