    Private Automatic Computer Exchange (PACX)
    ( 1986-05) University of Hawaii Computing Center ; Yee, Walter
    In 1972, the Computing Center studied the development and implementation of a Gandalf data switch which was used to improve terminal access to several HP2000 systems on the University of Iowa campus. As timesharing resource utilization grew in the University of Hawaii, a need for a data switch to maximize utilization of ports also emerged. In 1978, the Computing Center acquired a PACX I (128 X 128). Since 1978, the growth of use of computers and numbers of computer systems universitywide required upgrades to a DUAL PACX II (256 X 256) and then to the currently existing QUAD PACX IV (1024 X 512). The system will be upgraded to a PACX 1000 (1024 X 1024) in mid June, 1986. PACX IV systems are also located at MSO, and at Leeward, Maui, and Kauai Community Colleges. A PACX 2000 is located at the EWC. A PACX 2000 is planned for installation at the Diamond Head Campus of Kapiolani Community College during the Fall Semester, 1986. A PACX 2000 is also planned for installation at the HILO College and at Hamilton Library during the next 12 - 24 months. All currently installed PACXs are either connected or will be connected to each other this calendar year to complete formation of a PACXNET with automatic routing of calls.

    Report to the 1997 Hawai'i State Legislature RE: S.R. No. 132 Requesting the Coordination of Efforts to Make University of Hawai'i Library Collections Available on a Systemwide and Statewide Basis through Modern Distributed Digital Storage Systems and Telecommunications Technologies
    ( 1997-02) University of Hawaii at Manoa. Library
    S.R. 132 asks the University of Hawai'i to do this report and this fulfills the obligation. [...] The University's Strategic Plan provides the basis for advancing the use of information technologies and libraries to broaden access to educational opportunities and knowledge resources through local as well as worldwide networks. It articulates the development of the necessary support in a number of areas, including: technical infrastructure, equipment replacement. facilities, curriculum revision and services. The proposed library plan outlined below is developed in relation to the University's plan and priorities. Over the long term, it assumes that households in Hawai'i will have access to telecommunications networks with the capacity and speed to distribute digital information in various formats, that funding will occur for digitization of the Hawai'i Interactive Television System (HITS), and that the University's Internet link to the mainland will be upgraded well beyond its present T2 level.

    How Do You Say Computer in Hawaiiaiian?
    (Wired USA, 1995-08) Hale, Constance
    If there was one watershed moment for the dying Hawaiian language, it must have come in 1983, when a study showed that only 32 students under 18 (most of them concentrated in remote hamlets of Kaua'i and Ni'ihau) were able to speak Hawaiian. Immediately after the study, a dedicated group of professors and activists - many of them now at the University of Hawai'i in Hilo - gathered in Honolulu to start plotting the great Hawaiian-language comeback. Step One: repeal the century-old law prohibiting the teaching of Hawaiian in public schools. Step Two: establish a system of public schools with Hawaiian-language immersion programs. Once the schools started opening, it came time to hoist the Hawaiian language into the techno age - hook, line, and SLIP connection. That's when NeSmith joined forces with Keiki Kawai'ae'a and Keola Donaghy. In computer networks the three found a new medium that used the oral and the textual as its currency, a medium perhaps better suited to an oral tradition than the book ever was.
