The Colorado State Publications Library (CoSPL) was established by the General Assembly in 1980 as a part of the Colorado State Library and the Colorado Department of Education. The mission of the library is to provide Colorado residents with permanent public access to information produced by state government. The state publications are valuable sources of information published by Colorado state agencies that include annual reports, budgets, planning reports, consumer information, legislative reports and directories. The publications cover a wide variety of topics including health, business, education, crime, agriculture, mining, employment, taxes, water quality, wildlife and the environment. This publication is one in this collection.
