About the Division

The College and University Libraries Division encourages the development and growth of all aspects of college and university libraries and librarians through activities sponsored by AzLA. Arizona is home to about seventy academic libraries of all sizes, serving a wide array of disciplines and populations. The people who work in these libraries are experienced and creative, providing a potential source of knowledge and collegial support.

The College and University Libraries Division is a recognized chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).

While CULD is the formal group representing Arizona's academic libraries to official library organizations such as AzLA and ACRL, we are also well aware that much truly valuable learning takes place when needs arise, and useful assistance may come from unexpected places. We have a couple of ways to promote and facilitate communication and we encourage you to share your questions and concerns, as well as your opinions and experience. Please engage in our shared mission and help to build and support our community.

CULD Listserv

The CULD listserv is an unmoderated email subscription service that allows you to send and receive messages from all other members/subscribers. This is a great way to ask questions, share information, and have a discussion directly with other members.

Join the CULD Listserv.


Check out the CULD blog, established in 2010, where we share information. What's your library up to? Have news to share?

To submit content, please contact PJ Purchase or Laura Castillo.
