Library Tip: Nature News
The Kresge Library is pleased to announce that additional years have been added to the Nature archive. Now online access to Nature goes back to 1950. Digitization has begun on earlier issues, back to Issue 1 in 1869, but this won't be complete until late 2007.

Nature has also announced the launch of a new webpage design for its homepage with improved navigation and quick access to news headlines, most popular searches, and subject browsing.

For more information, contact the Kresge Library Help Desk, x4-8705 or helplib@scripps.edu.

Registration Opens for 11th Annual Employee Golf Tournament Registration is now available on a first-come first-serve basis for the 11th annual Scripps Research employee golf tournament. This year’s tournament will be held

Thursday, August 3 at noon at Carlton Oaks Country Club in Santee, California. For a $60 registration fee, you receive golf cart, practice balls, dinner, and a chance for prizes—including, if you are really good or really bad, a trophy. 

Don’t delay in signing up as the tournament usually sells out. Each team is required to have a minimum of two Scripps Research employees. Sign ups can be as an individual, or in twosomes, threesomes, or foursomes. Payment must accompany registration. Vendors may sponsor prizes, but not registration fees for employees.

Additional information and the registration form can be found at the Sports@Scripps web page. Please contact Trish Fillet, pfillet@scripps.edu, with questions.
