Colorado Virtual Library

The brand-new Colorado Virtual Library (CVL) has just been launched! This exciting State Library project is a great new website with lots of information on various Colorado topics. One of the highlights of the site is the Colorado Histories section, which includes digitized Colorado historic newspapers and a fun new section with biographies of famous Coloradans. New biographies will continually be added so check back often. Each famous Coloradan has a short bio, links to more resources, and a photo. These bios are great for any age, but are especially useful for 4th graders studying Colorado history, providing a helpful starting point for their research on significant persons in our state. Many of the people whose biographies are featured on the site also have full-length biographies within the publications of our collection; particularly in Colorado Heritage magazine; some, like Josephine Roche and Horace Tabor, have full, book-length bios in our collection. So if you’re researching one of the featured persons on the CVL site, be sure to check our catalog for information, or let us know who you’re researching so we can look for articles on that person. We’re always happy to help in your research, whatever the topic.
