Hawaii's Old Records Are Literally on Ice

Alia Wong/Civil Beat

Looking for archived government records? They might be in the freezer.

The freezer in the Hawaii State Archives, that is.

Hawaii's archives library collects and preserves state government records — dating from the monarchy all the way up to the most recent legislative session — and makes them accessible to the public.

These records come in all shapes and sizes: leather-bound books, maps, loose sheets of paper, artifacts, you name it.
