Spotlight on the Atherton

by Stacy R. Judy, Atherton Library

When was the last time you visited Atherton Library at HPU’s Hawai‘i Loa campus? With a panoramic view of the majestic Ko‘olau Mountains, Atherton combines an unforgettable setting with a comfortable yet academic atmosphere. Don’t let that pleasant exterior fool you, though. Atherton has much to offer every student at HPU.
   
On a campus where study space can be at a premium, Atherton offers a number of options: for groups who want to quietly confer on coursework, tables accomodate several people. For individual study, carrels and individual study rooms provide peaceful quiet.  
   
Atherton Library houses an extensive collection of books and periodicals carefully chosen to fill the needs of HPU’s diverse student population.  
   

In addition to a large pre-medical/nursing collection, Atherton has books on the humanities, sciences, and business. It also houses the HPU Hawaiiana Collection—books and resources from and about Hawai‘i and the Pacific.

The reserves collection has class materials provided by instructors. Our periodicals collection is both scholarly and mainstream, featuring periodicals in a variety of areas. Whether you are looking for a refereed journal or just something to read while you’re waiting for class, we can provide it.

We can also provide technology: Atherton has 11 computers with Internet access. Four can print!

Have a question? Want to learn to use an online database? Need a book? Our friendly and knowledgeable reference staff is eager to help you find what you need to succeed at HPU. Send questions to: libcirc@hpu.edu
