Copyright and academia will be the focus of this week’s presentation in the Honolulu CC library.
Academia
Cory Lenz,from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Law School Library, will give legal guidance on copyright and discuss the uses that students and faculty can make of copyrighted materials.

Storm approaches, stay alert

The University of Hawaii officials are urging students to closely monitor news reports and their UH alerts as Tropical Storm Olivia approaches the islands.

If the storm remains on track, it could bring tropical storm conditions to Oahu by Wednesday morning.

So far there are no known plans to close school because of the storm, but UH officials say it is of vital importance that all students, faculty and staff keep informed of the latest
developments and prepare for the possibility of the need to shelter in place or move to a public
shelter.

As Olivia progresses, each campus will make decisions on whether to close or reopen classes and
activities depending on local conditions.

All members of the UH community are urged to sign up for UH Alert to receive emergency text alerts:
