This resource provides access to more than 800,000 photographs collected since 1850 (!) as well as more than 14,000 graphics. The bulk of the photographs in the collection are those taken by Associated Press photographers over the past ten years. The library's license allows faculty and students to make use of the images in the database in non-commercial multimedia presentations.
The archive allows users to search the database by keyword, time period or specific date, location or any combination of these three. Each day, the archive provides access to the approximately 800 photographs taken by AP photographers all over the world (usually within minutes of the time the photos are taken). Each photo includes detailed captions which put the photos in context. At the end of the day, AP editors select the 200 most significant photos of the day and add these to the permanent collection. If youre interested in how this works, just log in around noon (http://ap.accuweather.com/) and type today in the when box and press ENTER. Youll have immediate access to a fascinating collection of several hundred photographs taken earlier that day, in the order they were taken.
The AP Multimedia Archive is also a rich source of interesting and useful newspaper graphics. These include maps, diagrams, charts, graphs, and illustrations - all the kinds of graphics you might find in the daily newspaper. (To see a sample of the kinds of illustrations included in the database, you might try a sample search like Afghanistan and caves in the What box after specifying Graphics PDF.)
If you have any questions or would like some help using this database, please call the reference desk at x6662. (NOTE: Please logoff the database when you are finished using it so that the next person will have access to it. There is a limit of five simultaneous users for CC.)
An aggregate of forty-six peer-reviewed journals in the biological, ecological and environmental sciences, published by small societies or non-commercial publishers. For each journal, BioOne presents the full text of papers, including any corresponding tables, graphics and illustrations, from 2000 forward. Most of these journal titles have previously been available only in printed form. Tutt subscribes to the print versions fourteen of the 46 journals in BioOne.
Accessible from the Tutt Library Article/Information Databases page, indexes journals covering cultural, economic, political & social change.
Includes some full-text, identifies if a journal is held by Tutt Library, and provides easy Interlibrary Loan.
The library is offering a series of workshops for faculty and staff this spring. The first workshop on creating links to articles in full text databases was offered during half-block and repeated as part of the ITS Faculty Seminar February 15. Materials for this workshop may be found on our web pages at http://www.coloradocollege.edu/Library/Reference/creatinglinks.html
Upcoming Workshops-Notices of time and place will be distributed on faculty and administrative digests:
Special Collections is pleased to present a small exhibition on African-Americans at Colorado College and in Colorado Springs. Visit the second floor of Tutt Library to see photographs of the first African-American students at CC, a student newspaper article from 1900 on Booker T. Washington's visit to campus, books by faculty and alumni on African-American history and culture, and more.
Tutt Library has been accepted as a member of a bold experiment in digital reference service started by the Library of Congress. The project, Collaborative Digital Reference Service (CDRS) provides professional reference service to users anywhere, anytime, through an international digital network of libraries.
Currently 200 libraries and research institutions are members of CDRS. Member libraries are from nearly every continent. Colorado College has the distinction of being the first (and currently only) library in Colorado that holds membership.
What does this mean for CC students and faculty? If Tutt reference librarians are presented with a question not answerable with the considerable resources at their disposal, the question can be sent electronically to another library through the CDRS system. The system then assigns the question to a library with the expert staff and collections most likely to be able to answer the question. For instance, a question on naval military protocol might be answered by the Naval War College in Rhode Island. One library used the system for getting help in transliterating a Saudi place name.
Tutt Librarys involvement in this virtual network of reference service expands our opportunity to provide the best service possible to the CC community.
