An aspiring geophysicist, intern and geoscience major William Fabrocini (B.A. ‘22) was first in line when the opportunity came to work with a geosciences professor through the Geospatial Centroid at the CSU Libraries.
The Geospatial Centroid at the CSU Libraries serves as a resource for the growing field of geospatial data and mapping. It’s also a second home on campus for student employees, like Mary Williams (B.A. ‘22).
Data literacy is the ability to think critically about statistics and data visualizations, to understand both the power and the limitations of data, and to advocate for ethical data use are all key aspects of data literacy. What are some key data pitfalls everyone should watch out for?

Middleton’s presentation will look, in part, at the works of Black feminists poets who might not be as well known, and what happened to those writers. This research was a continuation of Middleton’s time at CSU, where she earned her undergraduate degree in English and master’s in ethnic studies.

Thanks to the work of archivists and librarians, the Sutherland family’s legacy – an example of how resiliency and positivity can emerge from adversity and transform lives – will be preserved and accessible to researchers, providing more insight into their wide-ranging impacts within local and international communities.
