|Historic Photos of Colorado Mining
Ed Raines, collections manager for the Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum, is the author of Historic Photos of Colorado Mining. This coffee-table book provides a visually stunning introduction to Colorado’s discovery and early development of mineral wealth through nearly 200 vintage photographs. Many of the ruins found throughout the mountains of Colorado are recognized as historic landmarks. Often the stories behind the ruins are as fascinating as the sites themselves. In his book, Raines meticulously recounts the stories of the prospectors, miners, engineers, teamsters, railroaders and townspeople who served as entrepreneurs and workers in industrializing the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Two Humanitarian Engineering Publications
In Carl Mitcham and David Munoz’ book, Humanitarian Engineering, the first of two central chapters describes humanitarian engineering as the artful drawing on science to direct the resources of nature with active compassion to meet the basic needs of all – especially the powerless, poor or otherwise marginalized. A second central chapter then considers strategies for education in humanitarian engineering. Reflections on the challenges and implications raised by these subjects constitutethe rest of the book.
Both of the above publications may be purchased online from Morgan Claypool morganclaypool.com/toc/ets/5/1 (From the Mines campus, they may be downloaded in PDF format without charge under an Arthur Lakes Library campus-wide subscription.)
