The Library's catalog, Orbis, provides access to collections material across the Yale University Library. Below is a list of recently cataloged Beinecke Library acquisitions that are now available in the catalog.
Typed transcripts of twenty-six volumes of autograph diaries kept by Levi Chamberlain from November 11, 1822, when Chamberlain arrived in New Haven, Connecticut, to begin his journey to Hawaii, through January 1, 1849. The entries detail his life as missionary and teacher, and then as superintendent for secular affairs for the Sandwich Islands Mission; topics include the conversion and education of the natives, and the arrival and departure of ships from and to America and elsewhere, with mention of people aboard. Also recorded are his trips away from Hawaii: to California and Mazatlan in 1840, and to China and the United States around the Cape of Good Hope returning to Hawaii via South America, Cape Horn, and Tahiti, 1845-1847. Levi Chamberlain was responsible for keeping records and accounts on all supplies that came in to the Mission and also kept accounts on all supplies requisitioned from him by individual missionaries on all the Hawaiian Islands. Because he was in frequent contact with all of the missions, he was the hub of information for any news concerning the missionaries and their activities throughout the islands.
