Tutt Library will waive library fines for CC students who donate canned goods. Each item donated is worth $2.00 toward fines. This offer does not apply to lost materials or to fines accrued on recalled books. This offer is only good from April 8th to the end of Block 8. Any books returned after May 15th will be subject to normal fines.

The basement levels of Tutt are kept open by student monitors and security officer Mike Sanchez until 4:00 a.m. the last Monday and Tuesday nights of each block. Refreshments for all the night owls are provided by Tutt Library. Thanks to all for your support of this very popular service.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Susanne Felber at email@example.com or Ext. 6670.
We haven't spotted too many tigers roaming free around Colorado Springs. So why did Colorado College choose the tiger as its mascot? College lore has it that in the late 19th century, the CC Trustees made the decision in an homage to Princeton University's tiger emblem. Nearly a hundred years after in 1994, a group of CC students began a campaign to change the mascot from the tiger to the greenback cutthroat trout, the Colorado state fish. When the subject came to a vote, the tiger won by a narrow margin: 468 for, 423 against. Take a look at the display cases on the second floor of Tutt Library to find out more.
Tutt Library, with generous support from the Colorado College Asian Studies program, hosted Cuihong (Cherry) Cai for a librarian exchange during the week of April 15, 2002.

She visited us after completing 4 months of doctoral research work in International Affairs at Georgia Tech. The purpose of the exchange was to:
1) improve library contact between Fudan University and Colorado College;
As one of the largest employers of students on campus, Tutt Library depends on student employees to support most of our services. They do it all, from working at the Circulation Desk, reshelving books and periodicals, checking in periodicals and government publications, and ordering, processing, and cataloging materials. We will honor our graduating student employees at a breakfast on May 17. To allow everyone to attend, the library will open at 11:00 AM on Friday May 17.
Two library staff members completed the Masters in Library Science degree at the University of Denver last fall and have moved on to professional library positions. Judith Seeley, Periodicals Coordinator for Tutt since August 2000, now works as a Catalog Librarian at the Douglas County Public Library in Castle Rock. Monica Davis, Government Documents Coordinator for Tutt since July 1996, will be starting a new position at the Pikes Peak Public Library as Reference Librarian.
Library Night Supervisor Lance May accepted a position in technology support for the Falcon School District in March.
Familiar faces: Margret Salm begins work on May 6 as the Periodicals Coordinator. Patrons of the Penrose Public Library will recognize Margret, who has worked in circulation for PPLD for almost 19 years. Mike McEvers left his full-time position in the library a couple of years ago to pursue his interests in photography, but has continued to work part-time on digital projects and on-call. We are happy to announce that Mike has returned to the Library Night Supervisor position.
Julie Jones-Eddy, Government Documents Librarian, will retire on May
15. Julie was hired as a Reference Librarian in 1977, and was later assigned
responsibility for the Government Documents Depository Collection. She
also served as the liaison to the departments of Art, Drama, Dance and
Music for a number of years, and has served as Associate Director and

the same topic, Homesteading Women : an oral history of Colorado, 1890-1950
in 1992. Julie was also an active participant in national and regional
