Finding and using images for articles, blogs, theses, or presentations can be stressful. This workshop will introduce you to the library's visual collections and focus on determining whether a particular image requires permission or can be used under "fair use". We'll also provide suggestions on where to find images already flagged for reuse, and best practices for citing images.

Do you need help wrangling existing data, or writing a data management plan for a grant? This session will cover common data management missteps and walk through the steps of creating and implementing a data management plan, including software solutions and meeting funder compliance policies.

academic identityOwning your academic identity

Public academic profiles and researcher identifier systems like Mendeley, ResearchGate, ORCID, and Google Scholar are all platforms where researchers can connect with other experts, find collaborators, and disseminate their work freely. During this session, we'll discuss why managing our academic profiles is important and how we can use these tools to promote ourselves and our departments. We'll set up ORCID and Google Scholar accounts and begin building our profiles.

Special Events Cosponsorship Program

Find information and application details for the library's special events cosponsorship program.


    The purpose of CSU-Pueblo Library’s Special Event Cosponsorship is to encourage collaboration between the Library and other campus entities as well as to further the Library’s mission to provide special events and collections that promote “cultural appreciation and lifelong learning throughout the campus and community.” ("Mission"). These cosponsorships will be used to partner with other campus entities for the purpose of hosting special events that specifically meet the criteria articulated in the Library’s mission statement. Participation in campus events is an important element of the Library’s outreach and service mission and enhances positive connections to the campus community. The Library will evaluate all requests and determine the amount, nature, and source of the Library’s contribution to campus events. The Library retains the sole right to choose which projects it will fund and may use discretion in determining which projects are the best fit for its goals. In doing so, it will consider issues such as suitability to the Library’s mission, diversity of topics presented over a period of time, potential for campus interest in the topic, etc.


    In August of each academic year, the Library will issue a call by campus email for proposals. Applicants will complete the attached funding request form and submit it to the Library by the date specified in the email. Funding will be dependent on the Library’s budget in the given year, but will not exceed $1000 per event. The Library may choose to fund one or more proposals, or none at all, based on the quality of the applications and the Library’s available funds.

    Application Eligibility

    Any registered student organization, faculty member, or staff member may apply for a cosponsorship from the Library for a special event that meets the specified purpose of the program outlined above.
