Books in Tiger

Use the Tiger catalog to find books, in both print and electronic formats. You will find other resources in the catalog including electronic journals, music, database links, government documents. Individual journal articles aren't listed in Tiger; use databases to locate them.

In the 2016/17 school year, most books are in storage. They can be requested in Tiger. Books will be delivered on a set schedule - don't wait until the very last minute, you may not be able to get the book in time!

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.

Prospector

Search Prospector for books in the region -- Colorado plus University of Wyoming-Laramie and some libraries in Kansas.

Use your last name and long Tiger number to complete the request process.  If Prospector won't accept your number, please contact the Circulation Desk at (719) 389-6184. 

Books generally take from 3-5 business days to be delivered.  You will receive an email notification when requested items arrive.  Prospector books can be picked up at the Circulation Desk.

Tip: You can monitor the status of a Prospector request by logging into your Tiger account.
