To start your research, use our Get Started guides (Hawai'i CC / UH Hilo) and Topic Strategy guide.

In-depth Research Guides are also available for various subject areas.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for assistance.

Laulima Help for Students

The Instructional Technology Support Office at Hawai'i Community College has created a fantastic Laulima Help for Students page with videos, tips, and information on getting started and becoming familiar with Laulima.


Loans from Other Libraries

A loan service is available if the UH library nearest you doesn't have the materials you need.

UH Hilo and Hawai'i CC distance learners at other sites should consult with a librarian at their site library for more information about obtaining materials.

In special cases, books may be mailed to distance students and faculty.

Fees and restrictions may apply.

For Faculty

  • I am happy to have an "Ask the Librarian" space in the Discussions or Forum section of your Laulima site. 
  • I can also create narrated PowerPoint presentations to help students with finding and evaluating library and Internet resources. 
  • Several distance instructors and I have created a series of assignments to help students with finding and evaluating library and Internet resources - contact me to see a sample of these assignments.

Please contact me so we can work together to provide library services to you and your students.
