Preserving Collections, Ensuring Access
February 15 - 16, 2019 (Fri - Sat)
Panel 2: "Hidden" Hawaiiana: Bringing Local Artifacts to Light Sat, 16 Feb 2019 12:00pm (15m) (global) - Brooks Haderlie, BYU-Hawai’i University Archives
A significant but largely unknown collection of more than 1,500 Hawaiian, Polynesian, and Pacific Rim artifacts is housed in the Joseph F. Smith Library Archives and Special Collections at Brigham Young University-Hawaii. This session will describe our current efforts and future plans for making this collection accessible to local patrons and distance researchers, who will be able to use both Hawaiian and English search terms to discover and learn about these items.
Brooks came to Paradise just a couple of years ago from the BYU-Idaho library, where he worked for 20 years. Prior to that he worked as an Information Scientist in Ohio. He has traveled extensively and is very concerned about the preservation of cultures, language, and history.
