The Black Caucus of the American Library Association bestowed its prestigious Trailblazer Award to Laney College Librarian Shirley Coaston on July 29. Coaston received the award virtually at the National Conference of African American Librarians. 

In late January, ACRL announced that Santa Rosa Junior College Library was a recipient of their 2020 ACRL Excellence in Academic Libraries Award. SRJC "was chosen for its dedication of services to its campus community." Read more in the ACRL Insider. Congratulations SRJC!

Cerro Coso's newly-developed, 3-unit "Advanced Library Research and Information Studies" course has been approved to meet CSU GE Area E and expands our students' options for meeting our local AA "Information Competency" requirement. The course covers academic research and documentation, critical inquiry, and the impacts of living in an information society and the Cerro Coso Librarians are excited to teach the class starting in fall, 2019!
