Friday after Thanksgiving hours

The library will be open on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Please let your students know that in addition to our "awesome" library and "da bomb" librarians (their words, not mine), we will be making donut holes all day.

If anyone has a recipe for donut holes for a donut hole maker please send to me. Otherwise, I will have to improvise.

Thanksgiving Hours

The library will be closed November 27. The library will be open normal hours (10–4) November 28.

Ancient manuscripts available online for free

One of the oldest libraries on the planet is digitizing its archive of ancient manuscripts — and they’re all available to view free of charge.

The Vatican Apostolic Library is undertaking an extensive digital preservation of its 82,000 document collection. Over the course of a few years, with the assistance of Japanese company NTT DATA, the library has catalogued nearly 4,500 manuscripts online — and it hopes to reach the 15,000 mark within the next four years.

The Last Chained Libraries

In the Middle Ages, books were incredibly scarce, and although many wanted to share knowledge with the masses, they didn't quite trust the public. So the chained library was born, and while most of these restrained reading collections have vanished, a rare few still exist, looking much as they did centuries ago.

Increase your brain power!

Hitting the gym can boost your memory, researchers have found. They say an intense workout of as little as 20 minutes can enhance your long-term memory by 10 percent in healthy young adults. Although the study used weight exercises, researchers said that resistance activities such as squats or knee bends would probably produce the same results.

If you are looking for a place nearby to lift weights, the campus' UH Maui Fit is the place!
