The University Archives & Manuscripts Department gladly welcomes our newest staff member, Ashley Kajioka! Ashley has been hired as our Reference Archivist, and thanks to her presence we are able to expand the hours that we are open.
Starting Tuesday, December 6th, our new hours are Tuesday through Friday, 9:30am-3:30pm (with the exception of the last week of the year). The Moir Reading Room is located on the 5th floor of the Hamilton Library Addition. (Hamilton Library floor maps here.)
In addition to taking on a good portion of the department’s reference responsibilities, Ashley will also arrange and describe archival materials, starting with the papers of former Bishop Museum Curator and UH Zoology Professor William A. Bryan. Ashley has previously worked with the University Archives & Manuscripts Department as a student assistant, and has also held positions at Sinclair Library and at KCC’s Lama Library.
