An LIS Program (and Much of a Library) Destroyed

There are some heartbreaking photos here of the October 30 flash flood that destroyed the ground floor of the Hamilton Library at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, wiping out the library’s map collection (numbering over 230,000 rare maps) and its government documents collection. The library’s acquisitions office and the university’s library science program facility were completely obliterated. [Photos link courtesy Library Juice.]
