With the Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia recently departing on a worldwide voyage named Mālama Honua, there has been a surge in interest for canoes and voyaging. Check out what kind of resources the UHWO Library can offer!

Use the suggested subject headings below to find books and e-books through Voyager or OneSearch:

If you find a book in OneSearch or Voyager that the UHWO Library does not have, you can request it through the Intra-system Loan program. Keep in mind that it may take up to 7-10 days for the item to arrive at our library.
