Use the catalog to find books & more at Colorado College

Use the CC library catalog to find books, DVDs, and other things in our local collection, as well as links to online resources such as ebooks and streaming video.

If you are used to the old "Tiger" catalog, that was replaced with our new catalog in the summer of 2019. It should work similarly to Tiger, but better! Please ask at the Research Desk or Circulation Desk if you need help.

Use Prospector to request books & more from across Colorado


If you can't find a book, DVD, CD, or other item you need in Tiger, you can use Prospector to search libraries across Colorado and then request that they be sent to the Tutt Library circulation desk for you to check out here.

Use WorldCat to request books from throughout the U.S.

 

 

 

 

 

When the materials you want are not available in the catalog or Prospector, you can search in WorldCat and request them through Interlibrary Loan.

 

  • WorldCat lists library holdings throughout the nation
  • Items usually arrive in 5-10 business days

Book Emergency 911

The book I want is not available in Tutt and I can't wait for Prospector or ILL.

Search the catalogs of UCCS Library or Pikes Peak Library District (PPLD)

It's 5AM and I need one more book for my paper.

Try Google Books -- the book you need may have full or partial viewing.

The popular book for my class is sold out at the Worner book store.

Check out Poor Richard's Book Store just down the street on Tejon.
