This spring, Special Collections will be starting a major conservation project of its photograph collections in order to preserve them for use by future generations. Beginning May 12, 2013, the end of Spring Semester, Special Collections will discontinue the practice of allowing users direct use of the photographs in our collections. This is a fundamental change from our present practice of allowing users ready access to these prints.
To view images not yet available on our Cleveland Memory Project, Special Collections users will need to fill out a request for the images for up to five folders from this specific list of Press Collection folders, or other of our collections. Special Collections staff will then make contact sheets (in PDF format) of the requested images. These will be distributed at no cost on a first come, first served basis, with expedited service to students and faculty.
Our goal is that eventually access to all our images will be provided via our Cleveland Memory Project website, where 50,000 of our popular images already reside. As we work our way through the hundreds of thousands of images that are not yet in Cleveland Memory, we thank you for your patience and continued interest in our collections. If you have any questions, please ask!

We'd like to thank everyone who stopped by to "Meet the Real Librarians of CSU" on September 10th in the Michael Schwartz Library. Visitors enjoyed the "meet and greet" and learned just what an excellent resource our Librarians, with their wide range of knowledge and experience, are for the CSU community. We're glad you enjoyed it, and we look forward to seeing you in the Library throughout the year.

The Friends of the Library Annual Local Authors Book Talk Series features Claire Gebben, who will visit CSU on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 from 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm in the Library, RT 503 to present her novel The Last of the Blacksmiths, the moving story of Michael Harm, a nineteenth century blacksmith from the Bavarian Rhinelands who dares to follow his dreams of freedom and prosperity and travels from Germany to Cleveland, Ohio, to pursue an artisan way of life.

William Barrow, Head, Special Collections at Michael Schwartz Library, will also discuss how Cleveland Memory.org and Special Collections can support family history research, as it did with our featured author.

Now through December 16, Cleveland State University Michael Schwartz Library hosts the Science On a Sphere exhibit presented by NASA Glenn Research Center and sponsored by NASA's Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) Program.
Science On a Sphere is a mesmerizing visualization system developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that uses computers and video projectors to display animated data on the outside of a suspended, 6-foot diameter, white sphere. The result is a unique and intuitive educational platform that can show real-time weather, planets, moons, tsunamis, climate models, and is only limited by the imagination.
The Science On a Sphere exhibit has sparked the interest of several Washkewicz College of Engineering Senior Design Project students. They plan to create new material to display on the sphere that effectively communicates technical information to a broad audience. Students and faculty are encouraged to visit the exhibit and see how it can be incorporated into their curriculum.
