Yes, you may use books and other print materials while in the Library. Seat reservations will be necessary for use of all non-circulating physical materials. Once you have touched a book, do not re-shelve it. Either bring it to the circulation desk, put it on a book cart (which will be placed around the library), or leave it on an unused portion of a table as a last resort. All materials will be subject to a 72-hour quarantine between users based on guidance from the REALM Project.

If you are a CC student, faculty member, or staff member who is unable to enter the library or has health and safety concerns, please contact the Circulation Desk staff ( or 719-389-6184) who will help arrange curbside pickup for you.

If you are a senior CC student writing a thesis or working on a capstone project, Tutt Library and Seay Library will mail our books and scores to you if we can’t find e-book replacements.
To start the process, please contact the liaison librarian for your major. They will work with you to find which books we can obtain as e-books and which books we will be able to mail to you, and to get your shipping and other contact information. After that, they will help you make the request in our online catalog and alert staff who will ship you the books—a total of up to 10 books at a time can be checked out to you this way. You will need to keep the box and other shipping materials to return the books, and you will also be sent a pre-paid return shipping label.
Note that shipping takes approximately 10 days depending on region. Due dates will be extended for these materials. We are only shipping books from our regular circulating collection and not theses, DVDs, equipment, etc., or books from other libraries such as interlibrary loan books. .

You may return books at the Circulation desk drop on the first floor, using any of the drop boxes next to the elevator, or the book drop located outside the South-facing Tava Quad door.

The Library has access to thousands of titles through its online resources. All of these titles are findable using the library catalog (via the “Search” box on the Library website) or the databases list.

If you use another route, the publisher cannot recognize you as such and may not give you full access. If you encounter any technical issues accessing electronic resources during this time, please contact us.

Yes, users can request print and electronic materials not held in the Library collection. Interlibrary loan is now available.
