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.

At the beginning of Block One 2017, books will not yet be available for you to browse and check out yourself. You can continue to use the red "REQUEST ITEM" button in Tiger, and you will be able to pick the book up at the Tutt Library circulation desk ion the first floor later that day, or the next day. The library website has more information about requesting books, including the schedule

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.
