Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer resources available from Tutt Library, CC campus, and the regional and internet communities

Find These Books @ Tutt Library

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.

  • Items arrive in about 5-10 business days

      How to access library databases from home: when you click on our database links from off campus, you will be asked to log in with your name and TIGER number. Once you log in, you will be able to access the database as a Colorado College user, just as if you were on campus.
