Project Overview

Vermilion Community College Library added 73 volumes and 33 titles to their collection.

The library is working on building a collection covering all eras of Minnesota history, as well as the geographic and ethnic distribution of Minnesota's population to support the outside reading required in Minnesota History.

The Minnesota history materials will support students taking American history, Introduction to Indian Studies, Introduction to Cultural Anthropology, Native American History, and Ojibwe Legends and Culture. As well as helping students, these materials will be used by their Elderhostel and Summer Institute attendees and as well as the visitors to the area, who come to the library to find materials about Minnesota.

All materials will be cataloged and made accessible to all library patrons both on and off campus.
