We partnered with the American Library Association student chapter to tour the historic archival collections at the Hawai‘i State Archives. Our tour guides, archivists Susan Shaner and Luella Kurkjian showed us many interesting items from their collections, such as glass plates, hand drawn maps, photographs, old Māhale documents, and even the canon balls.
We had a great start to the semester during our first member meeting. 18 students that came to munch on some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chips and coffee. We talked about our planned events for this semester, scholarship opportunities from SAA, upcoming SAA-SC elections and our nifty new SAA-SC website. Out of the new students that came by to learn more, 7 of them became new members, yay! Please welcome Zoia, Ashley M., Brenda, Bryan, Koa, Ikaikai, Malia, and Roland.
