The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, School of Law Library has some great new programming! We have a Book Hospital program where trained book doctors repair books for law students for free and help to preserve books in the collection, including historic books. We created a comic strip advertising the book hospital, in the overly dramatic style of popular TV shows like Grey's Anatomy and E.R. You can see the full episode here.
We also just started offering workshops teaching the community how to make repairs to books and how to make notebooks. So far the workshops fill to capacity within 24 hours, and we even had to turn a few eager book lovers away!
Ellen-Rae Cachola, Evening Supervisor and Archives Manager, and Storm Stoker, Technical Services Support Specialist, wrote a grant proposal for additional archival supplies to continue these workshops and preservation initiatives. The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s, Women’s Campus Club awarded the School of Law Library a grant for $2,000.
Check out these great photos from our recent programming and feel free to try it at your own library!
