U Hawaii Manoa, Hamilton Library, Hit Hard by Flood

:: The University of Hawaii at Manoa, and its Hamilton Library (site down at the moment, duh!), suffered severe damage during a flash flood on October 31st. The basement of the Hamilton Library turned into a river as 90,000 maps and tens of thousands of archival photos were soaked. We have a large map collection in our library, with over 550,000 maps, and over 1,000,000 air photos, so this hits home hard!
