Tutt Library Research Guides
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.
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.
Search Google to find keywords related to your topic.
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.
The book I want is not available in Tutt and I can't wait for Prospector or ILL.
