Message from the Dean

Here at CSU Libraries,  

We are continuously working to promote and extend our successful online academic services in new ways during a time when COVID-19 has caused such uncertainty.  

These efforts include supplying students with laptops for long-term loan, assisting faculty with online teaching, and answering more than 300 online chat questions weekly.  

I invite you to check out our Library giving priorities below because a gift to the Libraries is a gift to the entire University. After all, library resources, services, and staff support every student, every instructor, and every researcher—every day. 

Karen Estlund
Dean of Libraries

Library Student Employee Support 

Employing more than 100 students, the Libraries is a major student employer on CSU’s campus. Your gift allows us to support even more students through meaningful employment and real-world work experiences, empowering students to thrive academically and professionally.

Electronic Resources and Services 

Each year, more than 1 million remote users access the Libraries’ databases, digital services, and electronic resources such as laptops on long-term loan, and online journals and e-books. Your support provides students, faculty, and staff with the resources they need to succeed in their academic journey and develop scholarship and research endeavors that contribute to society.

Archives & Special Collections: Rocky Mountain Collegian Digitization  

As one of the oldest collegiate newspapers in the Western United States, the Rocky Mountain Collegian, CSU’s student newspaper, provides a snapshot of student and campus life not found anywhere else. Give today to help digitize past editions of the Collegian so students, faculty, staff, and researchers can access the rich history of Colorado’s land grant institution.
