I am currently a student at the Colorado School of Mines and student worker at the Information Center for Ropeway Studies. For those who don't know, the Ropeway Center at Mines is the largest public resource on ropeway systems in the United States. The collection includes a variety of articles, conference proceedings, catalogs, photos, prints, and other historic material from the ropeway industry, One of our current goals is to increase the usage and overall awareness of the collection in the industry. I wanted to share some of our resources on this forum for those who may be interested.

General Information: https://libguides.mi...ections/ropeway

Ropeway Database (searchable database of material in the collection): https://mines.primo....by=rank&lang=en

Mountain Scholar Ropeway database (files from the collection available for download): https://mountainscho...dle/11124/20015

Ropeway Image Database (searchable database of online images, can download the images): https://mountainscho...dle/11124/20019

In addition to these online resources, there is a physical collection located in the Arthur Lakes Library at Mines in Room 309. For the Spring Semester (now through the first week of May), the collection will be open to the public to browse (no appointment necessary) from 12:00-2:30 on Wednesdays and Fridays.

If anybody has any questions or thoughts, feel free to leave a comment here or send me a message and I would be happy to help. There are plenty of unique and interesting items in the collection and I am looking forward to helping the collection be more useful to those in industry.

Anything is possible when you don't understand what you are talking about.
