Although the sign hasn't yet been moved, the research desk has been relocated to the lobby of Tutt where it will be for the next year+ during the building remodel. Hours do vary; you can check here for library hours.

or email research
or text a librarian a question at 719-387-5441
or contact a reference librarian via IM/chat from the Tutt Library landing page
The Help Desk is in it's new location :
Tutt South Library
in the south-west part
of the first floor
Their current hours are :
Mon - Fri: 8:00 - 5:00
Stop by and check out their new digs.
Check for regular updates and email
to share your ideas, questions, and stories
about the project.
The return box for books is still located by the front door and is available for returning materials when the library is closed.
While we don’t expect construction to impede access to bicycle parking racks, we also know that this is a time of constant change, and bike parking options may temporarily be affected. So, if you’re concerned about bicycle parking options here at Tutt, there are a few options to consider:
Here’s one option that won’t work:
The good news is that the southeast (quad) entrance will be ready very soon.
Once we shift over to that space, we will go back to having bike parking very close to the main entrance of the building!
How will I get books from Tutt Library?
Search the TIGER catalog and once you click into a result record, you will see the red button at the top of the page if the item is requestable. (Note that web links : Journals, Electronic books, videos, pdfs, etc. will not have this button since you can go directly to those resources.)
Clicking the red button will take you to a login page. (Your login is your last name and your gold card number.) Once logged-in you can click on the request selected item button.
The bottom section of the request page gives the schedule of retrieval for when you can pick the item up from the Circulation Desk.
How can I view and check requests I've made?
You can monitor your requests by logging into MY Tiger Record Account. You can get to that from the navigation bar on the right on the Tutt LIbrary home page or from within the Tiger catalog on the right side navigation bar. (Note that this is the same place you check Prospector requests.)
What if the item says it's being requested what should I do?
If the item has a due date or is requested the record will show that it is on hold or being requested or checked out. It will show both in the Tiger record and in the box for requesting the item. In which case, you will want to use Prospector to place a request.
How can I cancel requests I've made?
If you want to cancel a hold, you need to go into MY Tiger Record Account. You can get to that from the navigation bar in the Tiger catalog. You can also cancel Prospector requests there.
Hold on for the ride -- construction begins next week on campus. As a result, while materials located in the north part of the library building will be closed for browsing starting Tuesday, May 17th, they may be requested through the Tiger Catalog and picked up at the Circulation Desk.
Transportation of those items to the transition storage location over at the Creekside facility will begin Friday and will take many weeks. Those materials will need to be requested through the online request system. They can be picked up at the current circulation location on the 1st floor of Tutt North until the new circulation area is constructed in Tutt South. Special Collections, the Art Reading Room, and some other collections which will be housed in Tutt South during the construction period will be available for browsing. Online periodicals, e-books and the Digital Archives will remain accessible through the current means of access.
Until the migration into Tutt South, the Research Desk and the Help Desk will operate at their current locations.

Between January and September 2007 the design team from Shepley Bulfinch and H+L Architecture conducted a series of workshops on campus to define the role of the library and its ideal physical form. Broad input was sought from faculty, staff and students, including the Library Program Committee, the Facuty Executive Committee and Senior Staff. Staff from the Learning Commons, Tutt Library and Information Management were also involved in refining space needs. Over the course of these meetings, a number of different options for renovationg and expanding Tutt Library, as well as alternatives for a new library were considered. During the September 2007 meetings, two options were selected as viable solutions. One is a new library on the North Palmer Quad (Option F), and one is a transformed Tutt Library with an addition to the West (Option G). Conceptual studies of these options may be viewed in a display on the second floor bridge of Tutt Library.
