May is Archaeology & Historic Preservation Month!

The month of May has been designated as Archaeology & Historic Preservation Month to bring awareness to the importance of preserving the past for the future.  Many events will take place throughout the month to celebrate our historic places.  For background information on Archaeology & Historic Preservation Month and a list of events, see this webpage from History Colorado.

Our library has numerous publications on archaeology and historic preservation, including multiple property listings and information on the economic benefits of historic preservation from History Colorado; books on archaeology from the University Press of Colorado; grants and Main Street revitalization information from History Colorado and the Department of Local Affairs; archaeological project documents from the Department of Transportation; and studies from the state universities.  Check our web catalog for documents, many of which can be accessed online.
