Center for Colorado and the West

The Center for Colorado and the West, established on the Auraria Campus in 2009, has a delightful website which presents content of interest to any student or enthusiast of Colorado's past.

The Center's website offers monthly lists of new publications sure to please students, scholars, and librarians in search of vital new works for their Colorado collections. Biographical profiles present brief sketches of notable Coloradans. Research guides provided lengthy collections of materials relevant to different topics, and the two current offerings on Hispanic and America Indian experiences in Colorado.

But perhaps the most notable content on the website is its book review section, with a remarkable number of reviews on recent publications, where the reviewer is often as interesting as the work under consideration. And if the Center can sustain this pace and production of content, this is sure to be a frequent stop for those of us who revel in Colorado's past and present.
