I find myself struggling with the opposite of writer’s block lately. It’s the sort of catch-22 when there’s so much out there to comment on, you don’t quite know where to begin.

I am beyond excited to announce that on June 6th, the NSVRC Library achieved a milestone. On this extraordinary day, the library collection reached 30,000! As it stands now, we have surpassed a long awaited goal of reaching and going beyond this fantastic number of unique titles. These are titles that pertain specifically to sexual violence, prevention, and other related topics.
