Library and Information Research Basics
Need reliable information to support a class project or assignment? The staff can help you get started and offer tips about how to make the best use of the wealth of the online resources accessible to you through the UH library system.
Even though most of the UH system books, journals, and media sources are now available directly to you online, there are still physical items from our library or other collections in the UH system. You can order items yourself through the LibCat database and have them delivered for pickup at the Palamanui Library and Learning Center. The service is free and fairly quick.
Are you an upper-division student? Check your home campus library website for even more electronic resources.
