Cultural Heritage Center

In April 2001, SJSU President Caret signed documentation authorizing the creation of a Cultural Heritage Center. The goals were to provide a collection of materials to support the academic programs, to provide a visible identity for historically underrepresented groups, to provide a location where students, faculty, and others could access materials to support instruction and research, and to provide a location where students, faculty, staff, and members of the community could convene for events related to the mission of the center.

The Cultural Heritage Center occupies about 6000 square feet of space on the fifth floor of the King Library.

The Center is an open stack area; materials located in the Center are available during Library open hours.
