Please Pardon our Dust!

The first floor of the Simon Schwob Memorial Library on the Main Campus is undergoing renovations. The renovations will modernize library services to include more seating space. The scheduled completion of the renovations is the first week in August. Until the renovations are completed, Students and Faculty may experience a temporary interruption of services. Thank you for your patience as we are committed to providing CSU Students and Faculty the very best our library has to offer.

McNaughton Collection: Featured Book

If you’re anything like me, movies which begin with the tag “Based on a True Story”, immediately get my attention. There is something captivating about a true story of triumph to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy all over. “Miracle on the Hudson” is that kind of story.

Husband and wife journalists, William Prochnau and Laura Parker interviewed 118 passengers from U.S. Airways Flight 1549 which was successfully ditched in the Hudson River on January 15, 2009. The Airbus was disabled after striking a flock of geese near Manhattan. “Miracle on the Hudson: The Survivors of Flight 1549” tells the riveting stories of ordinary people doing the extraordinary in the face of certain death. A must-read page-turner!
