News & Events
We are with you. Black Rams Matter.
The Libraries stands in solidarity with CSU’s Black and African American faculty, staff, students, and community, and echoes CSU’s Office of the Vice President for Diversity’s Note of Solidarity in response to recent, and past, racist atrocities committed against Black people across the nation, including George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, Ahmaud Arbery, Nina Pop and Christian Cooper.
We acknowledge our responsibility as allies to help create a community that is anti-racist, and one that actively values and affirms Black lives.
Modern librarianship rests on an essential set of core values, with those values including cherishing diversity and recognizing our social responsibility to inform and educate others in order to help ameliorate or solve the critical problems of our society.
While we cannot alleviate the pain, we will work to support the Office of the Vice President for Diversity’s promise to do “all we can to challenge and change systems of inequity that perpetuate anti-Blackness, racism, and bias within our university.” We are with you. Black Rams Matter.
Volunteer to Transcribe Charles Lory Diaries
The University Archive at the Colorado State University is launching a pilot project to crowdsource transcriptions of four diaries written by CSU’s longest-serving President, Charles A. Lory.
We are looking for volunteers to help transcribe the diaries through a popular online platform, From the Page. The project will run until August 31. After editing by library staff, completed transcriptions will be freely available on Mountain Scholar, a digital repository for institutions in Colorado and Wyoming.
CSU Libraries’ Archives & Special Collections is launching a campus-wide project to encourage students, staff, and faculty to document their personal experiences during the coronavirus outbreak and contribute them to the University Archives. All members of the campus community are invited and encouraged to participate.
We are interested in your stories about the shift to remote instruction and learning, studying and working from home, working at off-campus jobs, the impact of closing residence halls and other campus services, and the ways you and your friends and family are staying in touch during the pandemic.
All events have been postponed or canceled due to the COVID-19 response.
