Centennial of a Calamity: New WWI Collection

Home

August 2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War I and the Auraria Library now offers a new First World War collection.

This repository of primary source materials for the study of the Great War includes diaries, scrapbooks, propaganda pieces, trench and soldiers’ journals, photos, correspondence, oral histories, sketches, paintings, cartoons, pamphlets, and sheet music. These resources are complemented by a range of contextual secondary features including interactive maps, chronologies, and scholarly essays.

The Personal Experiences module offers a window on the lives and experiences of civilian and military men and women during WWI; the Propaganda and Recruitment module contains a wide range of written and visual propaganda tools; and the Visual Perspectives and Narratives module presents international perspectives on the Great War through visual and documentary resources.

Get more ideas on how to find World War I materials through the Library’s History Guide.

Marical Farner Honored as “Let Your Light Shine” Employee of the Month

Home

Congratulations to Marical Farner, who received the University of Colorado Denver “Let Your Light Shine” Exempt Professional Assembly Employee of the Month award.

As Associate Director for Administrative & Technology Services at the Auraria Library, Marical works with others to ensure that Auraria Library systems, initiatives, and facilities remain effective, evolving, and nimble. To ensure that ‘form follows function,’ her duties in the past three years have included facilities’ redesign and construction oversight. Her role has intensified since July 2013 when the State of Colorado appropriated $4M for holistic design and selected projects in the Auraria Library renovation. In May 2014 when the Governor signed the Long Bill awarding another $17.8M for the Auraria Library renovation, Marical’s facility and fiscal responsibilities increased once again.  Her naturally collaborative style ensures design integrity and fiscal compliance through frequent communication with campus planners and fiscal officers as well as steering committees and design teams.
