Tiger, the CC library catalog, will tell you what we own (books, DVDs, CDs, etc.) or subscribe to (journals, databases, etc.) at Colorado College. It will not help you find articles in journals.
At the beginning of Block One 2017, books will not yet be available for you to browse and check out yourself. You can continue to use the red "REQUEST ITEM" button in Tiger, and you will be able to pick the book up at the Tutt Library circulation desk ion the first floor later that day, or the next day. The library website has more information about requesting books, including the schedule,
You have access to books from three sources -- TIGER, Prospector, and WorldCat:
If you have questions about any of the catalogs, feel free to ask me or the librarians at the reference desk for help -- that's what we're here for.
In the TIGER Catalog, you will find e-books as well as print books. Sometimes, when you open an e-book, it will ask you for a log-in. You will need to create one. Then you should be able to access the full book. A portion of the books can be printed.
You should be able download the book to most e-readers as long as your e-reader has Adobe Digital Editions installed. See E-Books at Tutt Library for directions.
