New List of Digital Collections

The Digital Library Production Service (DLPS) has created and hosted a very large number of digital collections over the last 10+ years.

Mario and Luigi

Authored by Ben Nanamaker: I'm not sure how I missed this, but yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of the release of Super Mario Bros.

(which introduced Luigi) - it was Super Mario Bros. that made Mario world-famous and saved the video game industry.

Welcome Back to the CVGA!

The fall semester is back upon us, and so we return to our regular hours: Mon Noon- 9pm; Tue - Fri 10am - 9pm; Sat 1pm - 9pm (closed Sunday). Actually that's an expansion on our Saturday hours from last year, as we're now opening on Saturdays two hours earlier.
