Clean out your pantry and clear your library fines at the same time!
Bring non-perishable food items to the Nielsen Library from April 27 – May 15. Each food item waives one $5 library fine, and there is no limit. All food will be donated to the Food Bank Network of the San Luis Valley.
This program does not apply to replacement charges for lost items.
Your opinion counts! The Nielsen Library is looking for ways to enhance services for graduate students, both on-campus and off. Focus groups help us to improve our existing services and develop new services to suit our users’ needs. Past focus groups have directly led to library improvements such as new study room furniture and extended hours for finals. We want to know how we can improve our services for graduate students.
Off-Campus Focus Group: An online discussion group will be open for the month of May $20 Amazon gift cards provided Students must contribute a minimum of one initial reply and one follow-up for all 9 questions to be eligible for the gift card. Sign up for this focus group

The Nielsen Library is excited to announce that we have begun the transition to an analog only collection.
Many libraries these days are acquiring more and more electronic resources like databases and ebooks, and some have even gone so far as to get rid of their print collections. We’ve decided to buck the trend and go in the opposite direction.
“We want to reestablish the old paradigm that libraries are quiet buildings full of books,” said library director Carol Smith, “What better way to do that than by getting rid of everything else?”
Some of the exciting changes you can expect to see in the coming months include:
the library computer labs being turned into quiet reading rooms
a WiFi free library building
the cancellation of all online journals and ebooks
