Meriam Library is always looking for new and interesting ways to reach out and connect with students. We have found that our dry/erase boards are an excellent way to connect with CSU Chico students.

Questions will be displayed on the Whiteboard weekly during each semester for students/staff/faculty to answer. These questions are for entertainment, collection development purposes, program ideas and general data collection for Meriam Library.

Meriam Library supports all campus groups’ right to express their opinions and aims to create a safe place for appropriate display of controversial topics.

Meriam Library is committed to presenting diverse points of view, the free expression of opinion, and the principles of academic freedom. Meriam Library does not necessarily endorse the viewpoints or comments posted on the white boards.

Any personal information personally identifying information or disparaging remarks towards individuals or groups of people will be removed.
