Major Change in Access to Photographs in Special Collections at the Michael Schwartz Library
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 a specific list of folders. Special Collections staff will make contact sheets (in PDF format) of 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.

Marion-Sterling Elementary School 3rd Graders say Thank You
"The future of Greater Cleveland - the future work force, the future political leaders, the future caretakers - can be found sitting in the desks and playing on the playgrounds of our region's schools. In public, private and charter schools all across town, the next generation is being prepared to take the reins of our great city and region." --President Michael Schwartz
President Schwartz's message of extending support into the community to help educate leaders of the future includes outreach efforts to help those students attending nearby inner-city schools. The work displayed is from Mr. Emanuel Stone's third grade class at Marion-Sterling Elementary school, which is just around the corner from Cleveland State University. This school is highlighted for the exemplary efforts put forth by dedicated teachers, administrators and staff to provide quality education to underprivileged students. In September, the Sociology Department at CSU collaborated with the Great Lakes Science Center to hold a school supply drive for Mr. Stone's classroom, collecting basic writing supplies, posters and needed classroom items that many inner city school classrooms, such as at Marion-Sterling, find themselves having to do without. The appreciation expressed by the school and the students has been heartfelt, and the gratitude that followed is the subject of this display. The message to this third grade class, the class of 2018, is one of anticipation to see them succeed. Conveying the idea that higher education is a challenging, yet life-changing and attainable goal was part of our mission. This message is something that students from more affluent districts take for granted.
