Abstract: This paper discusses the nature of three image collections - Hawaiian language newspapers, Hawaii War Records Depository (HWRDJ and Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands Photographs - as well as future plans and desires for these digital collections, funded as an IMLS project. The University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM) Library has traditionally had strong ties and a responsibility for serving information needs in the Pacific Islands region. The Hawaiian Newspapers, War Records, and Trust Territory lmage Repository Project broadens the range of Library services and provides library and research institutions in the Pacific region with opportunities to interact directly with sources which were formerly beyond their reach. The IMLS-funded project will provide a mechanism to explore the utility of digital surrogates for the local, national, and international research community. This Project hopes to demonstrate that wider access to these materials will significantly strengthen Hawaiian and Pacific historical scholarship. These three collections represent significant historical resources of interest nationally and internationally. These three collections will create a foundation to begin building a true digital library of Hawaiian and Pacific resources.
