Library Instruction and Information Literacy | University of Hawaii at Manoa Library

UHM Library Mission Statement

The library is an active participant in the teaching, research and service missions of the University. Its resources and services are designed to promote and enhance all University programs, especially the University's areas of excellence. As part of the University, the Library prepares students to enter and function in the information age. For the citizens of Hawai'i and the worldwide scholarly community, it supports information needs and intellectual inquiry. In fulfilling this mission, the Library selects, acquires, organizes, preserves, and provides intellectual and physical access to collections in a wide range of formats. The Library fosters the sharing of resources among all UH System campus libraries. It facilitates access to collections held by other academic institutions, government agencies and commercial providers of information. Electronically connected to information resources throughout the world, the Library contributes to global networked information resources, and provides assistance and education in information retrieval. To carry out its mission, the Library provides services and access to collections in the Hamilton and Sinclair library buildings.
