The Colorado State Library is a division of the Colorado Department of Education.
The Colorado State Library (CSL) helps libraries, schools, museums, and other organizations improve services, making it easier for all Coloradans to access and use the materials and information they need for lifelong learning.
The Institutional Library Development (ILD) unit addresses the needs of approximately 30,000 Colorado citizens residing in 40 state-funded institutions.
ILD staff provide leadership and expertise to Colorado’s state institutional libraries to meaningfully impact the lives of library users, their families, and their communities.
Find information about the correctional libraries served by ILD and learn how libraries support the successful re-entry of incarcerated people.
Resource sharing support for Colorado libraries is provided by the Networking and Resource Sharing (NRS) unit. NRS manages statewide services and projects so that libraries don't have to "go it alone."
NRS staff coordinates technology-based services best suited to groups of libraries to utilize the power of library partnerships, cooperative purchasing, and web-based resources designed to meet multi-type library needs.
