Images of Okinawa after WWII

Here’s a very cool new digital resource for people interested in the history of Okinawa or history after WWII. The University of Hawaii at Manoa has compiled a database of images that can be accessed by anyone and searched by title, author, reference number, category, date, or city. Very neat stuff, so take a look!

The Asia Collection of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Library is pleased to introduce the new image database, “Images of Okinawa after World War II” http://digicoll.manoa.hawaii.edu/okinawa/

The site provides over 250 images digitized from the Kupfer Slide Collection donated in July 2010 and the US Civil Administration of the Ryukyu Islands (USCAR) photos, which were part of Dr. Douglas Haring’s personal materials.

If images are used for non-commercial educational purposes such as use of the images in class lectures, students’ presentations, and academic conference presentations, no permission is necessary. Please credit the images with the sentence: “From the Images of Okinawa after World War II, courtesy of “the UHM Library Okinawa Collection” However if the images are planned to be used in books, newspapers, documentaries, films, and other forms of media and print, the users must write to the UHM Library Okinawa Collection to request permission. In the request, please explain the topic, image reference number, and the type of media/print.
