Honolulu Community College library collections focus primarily on the various programs of study on campus. The general circulating collection is located upstairs with reference materials and selected special collections found on the first floor. Materials belonging to the closed collection and/or archives are non-circulating; patrons should request the assistance of a reference librarian for access.
The library has a moderate collection of DVDs, VHS videotapes, and CDs. The majority of these materials are educational in nature and/or curriculum specific. Search availability by title or subject in the Primo Search.
The library is pleased to provide its academic users with online access to thousands of full-text articles, images, and streaming videos through its subscription electronic resources. These online research databases are available 24/7. Off-campus access is restricted to valid HonCC students, faculty, and staff with login authentication required with your UH username and password.
