The Ars Poetica LibGuide was recently added to the Tutt Library Research Guides just before Valentine's Day. It will be updated in the coming months to include information about Tutt Library's Annual Haiku Contest (coming soon, in March), events and happenings during National Poetry Month (April), and literary news regarding campus poetry events, contests, readings, publications, etc. If you are interested in poetry resources, or Tutt's offerings of databases, books, Special Collections, and much more, check out Ars Poetica
Did you know that CC Special Collections has a large collection of unique and rare materials concerning Camp Amache, the Japanese-American WWII internment camp in Granada, Colorado? Yes, we do, and a good portion of the materials have been digitized. Above is a photograph of the children who lived in the camp ca. 1943. Visit our Camp Amache page for a full description of the collections with links to digital images of documents.
Did you know that Booker T. Washington delivered a speech to a standing-room-only crowd at Colorado College in 1900? Yes, he did! To learn more about the history of African-Americans at Colorado College, we invite you to view a mini-exhibition in the Tutt Library atrium during February 2014. Here's the Black Student Union in 1979:
The Library has created a display of 2013 award-winning books and books considered the best of the year as reviewed by The New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly, Amazon, Library Journal, etc. These great reads are available for Winter Break check-out! The display is in the Library lobby beside the Leisure Reading section.(The Library is open until 5:00 on Friday, Dec 20, but then will be closed until January 5).
After several days of snowy weather, it seems like a good time to update everyone on our annual Winter Break Closure and request deadlines for Prospector and ILL.
As usual, Tutt Library will be closed over Winter Break (from Dec. 21st – Jan. 4th, inclusive - for exact hours, please consult our hours page). We will miss you all terribly. In the meantime, here is some important information about Prospector and Interlibrary Loan we thought you might need to know:
Prospector or Interlibrary Loan books that do not arrive before noon on Dec. 20th cannot be picked up until the library reopens on January 6, 2014.
PROSPECTOR BOOK REQUESTS: The Prospector system for borrowing books will be turned off during Winter Break. Many academic libraries will also cease lending around this time. The last day to request Prospector items will be Friday, December 13, with no guarantee that items will arrive before closing at noon on December 20. Prospector requests will be possible again on Monday, January 6.
INTERLIBRARY LOAN BOOK REQUESTS: Out-of-state books ordered through Interlibrary Loan must be ordered no later than Monday, December 10, in order for them to have the best chance of arriving before Winter Break starts (and even this cannot be guaranteed). Requests submitted over Winter Break will not be ordered until Monday Jan. 6, 2014.
ARTICLE REQUESTS: Requests for articles will continue to be ordered by the Interlibrary Loan Dept. through the library’s last day on Friday, Dec. 20. However, if your requested article does not arrive by closing on Dec. 20, it will not be available on your ILLiad account until Jan. 6.
Also, while we will do our best to get everything sorted out quickly on January 6th, there may be a backlog for a day or two. Thanks for your patience, have a wonderful break, and good luck with Block 4 in the meantime!
