A $10,000 grant has been awarded to Tutt Library as a Primary Partner of the Colorado Digitization Project. The goal of the Colorado Digitization Project is to expand the number of institutions undertaking digitization activities and the number of primary source materials available in digital format. Participants include libraries, archives, museums and historical societies. In the next two years Tutt Library's Special Collections and Archives will digitize four glass plate negative collections that document historical landscapes of the Pikes Peak Region. Several collections of documents from the WWII Japanese-American Internment Camp (Camp Amache) in Granada, Colorado will also be digitized.
The Tutt Library's first digitized collection is The Sand Creek Papers. View images and transcripts of letters concerning the Sand Creek Massacre on the Web at: www.ColoradoCollege.edu/library/SpecialCollections/Manuscript/SandCreek.html
The FirstSearch databases on Tutt's Article Access page have an improved interface. FirstSearch is the vendor that provides access to more than 40 of Tutt's electronic resources including: WorldCat, ABI-Inform, ERIC, MLA Bibliography, Periodical Abstracts, SocioAbs, PsychFirst, and Basic Biosis.
Some of the features in "new" FirstSearch are:
As with the prior version of FirstSearch, Interlibrary Loan links are contained in every FirstSearch database. You can request an Interlibrary Loan when viewing the book's full record in WorldCat or when viewing an item's full record in the many other databases.

Beginning Feb.1, 2000, the library will subscribe to the student version of Chemical Abstracts through FirstSearch. As we will be evaluating how this database serves our needs, feedback is encouraged. Searching the full Chemical Abstracts via Dialog will still be available but it's important to note that this new limited version of Chemical Abstracts provides abstracts where Dialog does not.
Chem Abs Student Edition covers 250 journals and 200,000 dissertations back to 1967 (Chemical Abstracts covers 8,000 sources, 74% of which are journals, back to 1907). The 250 journals included are intended to be those most useful for undergraduates and those widely available in libraries. Many of the journals to which we subscribe are on their list. Links to the full-text in other FirstSearch databases are included in the citations. The database is updated weekly.
Please give Nethery Wylie or Jan Keder a call at Ext. 6672 with comments or questions.
