Cleaning out your files?

Help us get the class of 2014 off to a good start on paper use! The Library is coordinating the production of "Onesie" (single-side-free paper) notebooks for each member of the incoming class.

If you or your department have some one-side-free paper you would otherwise be recycling, we'd love to have you drop it off at the library circulation desk, send it to us through campus mail, or contact us for pickup. PLEASE NOTE: paper contributed should not have any confidential or potentially confidential information on it.

For more information or for pick-up, please contact Dave Collins (

Help Increase Access to Research

In September, 2009, President Brian Rosenberg, along with 56 other presidents of liberal arts colleges, signed a letter in support of legislation that would make government-funded research freely available online.

On April 15, 2010, a bill was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives with this purpose. Currently, publishing rights to much of government-sponsored research goes to private companies who charge for access.

You can help too: Contact your representatives (Senate, House) and express your support for public access to taxpayer-funded research.

For more information, please visit the Alliance for Taxpayer Access.
