Getting started / Finding books
In many cases, a good place to start your research is with the Book Studies reference sources in the tab above.
For finding books, use TIGER, the CC Library Catalog:
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. (To do that, try the tab above.)
Prospector 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 me or any librarian if you need help with TIGER, Prospector, or WorldCat. That's what we're here for.
A word about browsing: when you go the shelf, make sure to look at the books sitting near the one you’re after. Serendipity is often the most successful method (if you can call it a method) of finding things.
In 2010, the library received a large gift of books-about-books from Calvin and Patricia Otto. A keyword search on their names may be fruitful. Or you may want to wander around in the Z (books about books) section of the stacks. Other useful searches might include Artists’ books, books and history, or printing and history.
