UHWO faculty and students can continue to request items online and have them delivered to the UH West Oahu Library. However, please anticipate delays, due to the transition to the new library.

Non-UHWO faculty and students will be able to request items from the UHWO collection beginning Monday, August 20, 2012.
Library staff will begin moving to the new campus on Monday, July 9, traveling back-and-forth between the Pearl City campus and our new Kapolei campus. The best way to reach us is via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
