Exhibit posterWe received some excellent news late this Friday afternoon: The City of San Diego’s Historical Resources Board has selected the SDSU Library as a recipient of a 2011 Excellence in Historic Preservation Award for our Chicana & Chicano Archive Project! Is that cool or what? A display recognizing this year’s award recipients will be located in the lobby of the City Administration Building between May 16 through May 27, and the awards ceremony will be held on May 26.

You may remember the exhibit we held last fall titled “Unidos Por La Causa” that celebrated this collection. If you don’t, you can still take a look online.

This is quite an achievement. Kudos to the folks in Special Collections who created this project and to Interim Dean Mark Stover for nominating us. Can we get a round of applause!?!
