SCFS 370: Ahupuaʻa: Search Tips

Presentation

General Search Tips

  • Don't be discouraged if you canʻt find anything right away! Land research can be difficult.
  • If you can't find anything specific to your ahuapuaʻ, try searching for the moku.
  • Look at subject headings - these work like hashtags and will help you find more relevant sources
  • If you found a book, write down or text yourself the call number...this is how you'll find the book on the shelves (don't forget to check around the area, you might find other books)
  • Save yourself time and stress - check the table of contents or index to see if your ahupuaʻa is mentioned in the book.
