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.

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

Find Books: TIGER, Prospector, and WorldCat

You have access to books from three sources -- TIGER, Prospector, and WorldCat:

  • TIGER includes all of the books owned by Tutt Library 
  • Prospector gives you access to books in 22 regional libraries
  • WorldCat lists library holdings nationwide

Delivery Times

  • Prospector is 3-5 business days

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.
