24/7 Help
Our 2018-2020 Strategic Plan was developed as part of a collaborative strategic planning process in Fall 2016 and Spring 2017.  With input and feedback from Castleton's students, faculty and staff, the Calvin Coolidge Library drafted a vision and four strategic priorities that will guide us through 2020.  
Strategic Planning
In this 3-event panel series, we welcomed 14 experts to discuss and consider how fake news and "truthiness" are affecting America, how we define and perceive truth, and how we seek and navigate information.
