Library Research Guide
The TIGER catalog is where you find books (and videos, government documents, microfilm, etc.) in Tutt Library and other locations at Colorado College. You won’t find journal articles here (or in any other library catalog, generally speaking)
Prospector - Colorado Unified Catalog makes it easy for you to get books (videos, CDs, etc.) from libraries around Colorado delivered to the Tutt Library circulation desk. This usually takes 3 to 5 business days, so plan ahead.
