The Alliance facilitated an information sharing meeting on 9/29/2016 covering Faculty Profile initiatives and systems and what our member institutions have implemented or are exploring in this regard. We will continue to compile information from our institutions as we receive updates. This information is shared on a new webpage: https://www.coalliance.org/faculty-profile-systems
The Alliance has setup a new listserv for the Gold Rush Library Content Comparison System to disseminate information such as new enhancements, updates, features, documentation, bugs, etc. to those using the system. You can also use the list to post questions about the tool, provide suggestions or other types of discussion related to the tool.

The Alliance is pleased to welcome our new member library, CSU – Pueblo. The University Library at Colorado State University – Pueblo was the first building constructed on the University’s new campus in 1965. After spending many decades at the center of campus, it received a much needed complete renovation and expansion, opening its doors in April of 2011. The new Library and Academic Resources Center (LARC) provides the campus with an integrated student academic support center that includes the Library as well as IT support services, tutoring, career center, writing room, Honor’s program, TRIO programs, and more.
