This year hundreds of thousands of historic documents relating to Kaho‘olawe will be published in an online database. Hawaii Public Radio's Molly Solomon has more on preservation efforts that are going digital.

You can get involved in the Kaho‘olawe Island Reserve Commission's Virtual Museum Pilot Program by taking a quick survey on what type of artifacts and images you'd like to see.
