Do you use photoshop at Reed? If so, please take this brief survey.
The images in this collection were largely created by Canyon Restoration Manager Zac Perry to document the Canyon from about 1999 to the present. The Reed Canyon was declared a wildlife refuge by the state of Oregon in 1913, and restoration efforts began in 1999. “Restoration goals include improving diversity of wildlife, managing invasive plant species, restoring native plant communities, and increase potential habitat for salmon and other resident fish.” (https://www.reed.edu/canyon/visit.html)
Also included in this collection are photographs of Canyon Day, images created by Canyon student employees and visitors, as well as pre-1999 photographs from the Reed College Archives.
This collection is open to current Reed students, faculty, and staff.
With the approach of All Hallows’ Eve, consider one of the many fine films in the horror genre to copilot your quasi-satanic celebration. Remember “video” in the call# means VHS – those scary looking tapes that your parents used to watch. Never fear – we have VHS players in the IMC (Lib32). And for your own horror-movie, haunted-house, film-fest, don’t forget to reserve a projector and screen from the IMC. Trigger warnings include gore, death, decapitation, dismemberment, disembowelment, impalement, defenestration, immolation, annihilation, skinning, scalping, sex and violence – and some bad acting.

Thesis Desk Lottery
Random numbers for the Senior thesis desk lottery will be drawn from the official 470 list. If you are a senior, but are not yet registered for 470, and want to be included in the drawing, please come to the circulation desk and have your name added to the lottery list by Monday, September 10. Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Studio Art, and Psychology majors are not eligible for thesis desks in the Library.
The list of numbers will be posted Tuesday, September 11 along with a map of thesis desk locations, so that you can have preferences in mind before the actual selection.
The choosing of desks will begin at noon on Wednesday, September 12 in the library lobby. You or your proxy must be present when your name is called. Lottery numbers are not transferable.
NOTE: Some desks, as indicated on the map, will be shared. In order to help create the most pleasant sharing arrangement possible, the person with the better number may bring in as a partner another senior on the list who has a lower number. Please make those arrangements before the noon time selection and let us know that is your plan when your name is called.
Any questions contact Brian Kelley
