Paul Wermager, Science/Technology Reference department head until he retired in 2010, self-published the volume SciTech: History and Recollections of the Science & Technology Reference Department, University of Hawaii at Manoa Library, and the University of Hawaii from materials and information he began collecting in 2005 during a search among old files for a history of the Science & Technology Reference Department in anticipation of the upcoming centennial for the University of Hawaii in 2007.

ItemFinal Report of Sabbatical Project during July 1, 2008 to December 31, 2008( 2008)In my original "Application for Sabbatical Leave," I outlined two planned projects: (1) to conduct a space inventory of the UH Manoa Library and investigate alternate uses of current spaces, and (2) create an Alice A. Ball website, containing useful information on the first African American woman to graduate from UH with a masters degree (1915) and her family. However, these plans had to be altered due in large part to an inability to find appropriate sampling techniques to provide accurate and statistically reliable data on space remaining in the Library. Instead of random sampling the library shelves, I began a detailed inventory that resulted in every shelf of Hamilton and Sinclair libraries being measured. (The shelving areas of Jefferson Hall, Wong NC Center, Maps, and the Dole Cannery were not inventoried.)
