Updates about the libraries' collections and operations will be provided at this FAQ as we have new information to share.


What is going to happen to all of the books?  Are you going to sell the books?  What is going to happen to the artwork?  What is going to happen to display items?

  • At this time, no decisions have been made about what will happen to all the books, artwork or display items.   

What is happening to the CVGS Collection?

  • Concordia University – Portland is reaching out to regional and national institutions to gauge their interest in acquiring these items.  We are looking for organizations who can build on and maintain the print and online collections and offer a similar resource to patrons working on research in this area.  

What about student dissertations and theses?

  • We hope to negotiate with another institution to continue to provide online access to Concordia University students' dissertations and theses on CU Commons. We hope print copies of theses will be moved to another institution's collection.

I donated books (or other items) to the collection. What is going to happen to those?

  • Items donated to Concordia are the property of Concordia.  Depending on the item, we will work to find public places where all can enjoy these materials. 


Thank you for your patience as we work through these issues.
