    Use Tiger to find books & more at Colorado College

    Search Tiger by 

    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.

    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 TIGER or Prospector, you can search libraries nationwide using WorldCat and request items through Interlibrary Loan.
