Wildlife conservation display
Wildlife conservation is an effort to protect threatened or endangered animal and plant species. Conservation also includes the protection of their natural habitat. The main objective of this practice is to insure that their habitats will be preserved so that the future generations of both wildlife and human can enjoy it. Additionally, wildlife conservation aims to raise awareness regarding the importance of wildlife and wilderness. Currently there are government bureaus and organizations that help promote different wildlife conservation areas. The government also aims to implement certain policies that are specifically created to protect the animals. Your HSU Federal Depository includes numerous federal and state documents that are made available for FREE public use. Documents such as management plans, technical reports, pleasure reading, and many other conservation related documents are available. Taking time to view these documents can shed light on conservation issues that may have an effect on social and economic issues. Management practices of the past have evolved and improved to what we have now. Constantly reinventing and adapting effective management strategies can help preserve wildlife for the future.  Check the online display for a sample of these important documents.
*NOTE: All specimens used in this display are loaned from Humboldt State Wildlife Museum. Their possession follows the appropriate laws, regulation, and conventions as part of the museum collection.

Galaxy Quest movie
The HSU Library is pleased to announce the launching of video reclassification project that began on July 1, 2014.  We are in the process of converting the entire Video Collection from the accession number system to the Library of Congress (LC) Classification System (like the books in the main collection).  By the end of this academic year, all DVDs and video tapes will be shelved under the single LC Classification System.  Until this project is finished, there will be videos with 2 different call numbers such as VIDEO9398 and PN1997.G25.
You’ll find that our feature films will be in alphabetical order, and browsing our collection is much easier either in stacks or online.  We would like to express our appreciation for your patience during this exciting project.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact Kumi @ 826-5656 or send her an e-mail.
