The mission of the Colorado State Library is to help develop libraries and deliver information services throughout Colorado. The Colorado Virtual Library helps connect Coloradans to their libraries, and to online resources across the state. In addition to the Library Directory and inter-library loan services, we will be highlighting collections of interest to a wide selection of Colorado's citizens.

Have an idea for what should be the next collection in the CVL?

Let us know.

Colorado Histories

By drawing on the Colorado State Library's in-house expertise and partnering with History Colorado, Colorado Women's Hall of Fame, and East High Alumni Heritage Hall, we've amassed a collection biographies of famous Coloradans, many enriched by beautiful archival images from the Denver Public Library. We've got an amazing history, and we're looking forward to helping libraries and museums across the state share that with you.

Tech Help

Technology is becoming more central to everything we do. From learning arithmetic, to landing your first job or launching your second career, you'll find a certain level of technological skill is a must. Libraries across Colorado have been helping learners of all ages get the computer skills they need for decades, and this collection is focused on bringing together great resources from across Colorado Libraries that will help you get started on the path to honing your tech skills.

Thanks, IMLS and State Library!

The Colorado Virtual Library is produced by the Colorado State Library, and is funded in part with funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act.
