Take a look at the display case at the top of the stairs in Tutt Second Floor South (up the stairs from the Learning Commons, near the old periodicals room) and see a selection from the Colorado College Zine Collection. Zines are small-circulation magazines, usually the product of one person's labor of love. Zines are often quite personal, with music, work, pop culture, and sexuality as common themes. Some zines are available to read in the magazine lounge section of Tutt Second Floor North, while the rest of the collection can be read in Special Collections, Tutt Second Floor South.

In the spring of 2005, Carky Rubens (CC class of 1952) and his family donated a single leaf from the Gutenberg Bible to Colorado College.
The Gutenberg Bible is the first book printed with movable type in the western world. In the mid-15th century, Johann Gutenberg printed about 180 copies in Mainz, Germany. 48 copies have survived and are preserved in libraries.
In the early 20th century, a bookdealer bought
a damaged copy of the Gutenberg Bible, dismantled it, and sold the leaves individually as "noble fragments."
On October 21, 1967, the Doors played at Colorado College's homecoming dance at the Broadmoor Hotel. CC alumnus Tom Reynolds donated his tape of the concert to Tutt Library in 2005. It contains four Doors songs: "Break on Through (to the Other Side)," "Strange Days," "Back Door Man," and "Light My Fire." For more information on the concert, visit Special Collections.
