Back to the Hawaiian Collection.

HSPA (Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Association) Plantation Archives
A unique collection of records from plantations on the Hawaiian islands of Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Maui and Hawaiʻi island. It is a rich resource, providing detailed insight into plantation life and the sugar industry in Hawaiʻi, spanning the years of 1850 to 1991. Researchers in the fields of history, business, agriculture, sociology, literature and many others, using the HSPA Plantation Archives for a wide variety of projects, have made this the most heavily used of the UHM Library Hawaiian Collection's manuscript and archive collections.


Dole Corporation Archives
Archives of the Hawaiian Pineapple Company/Dole Corporation. Records in the archives span the years 1901-1988, years when pineapple as a signature product of Hawaii, touched the lives of many individuals who worked in the fields and the canneries. Also included are records of Dole Corporation's international activities and relations with other Hawaiʻi companies and organizations.


Hawaiʻi Sheet Music Index
The Hawaiʻi Sheet Music Index contains approximately 1,300 bibliographic records of songs and sheet music about Hawaii. These records identify material located in the Bishop Museum Library, the Hawaiʻi State Library and the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Library's Hawaiian Collection. The Hawaii Sheet Music Index is now fully integrated into the University of Hawaiʻi Libraries' online catalog Hawaii Voyager. It can be searched separately or as part of the libraries' full catalog.
