TIGER 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.
The Prospector Catalog will help you find books and other items in other Colorado libraries which you can request and have sent to Tutt Library for you to use.
WorldCat can help you find books in libraries almost anywhere and request them via interlibrary loan.
Please ask a librarian if you need help with TIGER, Prospector, or WorldCat.
To research the background of your focal case, you will likely need to rely on news stories. Some cases will have already attracted academic attention, so you might find scholarly articles on those cases as well. The better-known and older the case, the more likely you will find a wealth of information on it.
