Temporarily Unavailable Materials in Special Collections

Department News

A number of Special Collections books and all UH theses and dissertations are currently undergoing treatment and cleaning as the result of a recent mold outbreak in our stacks. Please be advised that the item you wish to use may not be available at this time.

Fortunately, our boxed manuscript and archival materials were not affected and those may be used without difficulty. But until the source of the mold is specifically determined and our stacks are once again free of any contaminates, we will not re-introduce cleaned books into this environment.

We will issue updates as they are warranted, and sincerely regret any difficulties that may be caused for our patrons as a result of this recent problem.
