The Vision

Shelf space for voice.

Traditionally, institutions have viewed holdings—books, artifacts, images—as their primary assets. Colorado Voice Preserve, as an institution, eschews ownership claims. We hope to BE an asset to the community, by providing shelf space for voice. Our institutional value will derive from the ability to create thoughtful information (relying on humanities), apply meaningful organization (based on library science), provide maximum dissemination (through shared cataloging), and offer safe preservation.
