Borrow Materials From Other Libraries & Collections

With the Prospector Union Catalog offline until Spring, 2017, CSU-Pueblo affiliates--students, faculty, and staff-- should consider borrowing library materials directly from WorldCat, CSU-Ft. Collins, and the Pueblo City and County Library (PCCLD). Our interlibrary loan system, "ClioWeb", may also be used to order items not in our collections, as usual.

Please contact the Research Help Desk, 719.549.2333, for any assistance you may need with using the following alternate borrowing sources:

Why can't I borrow from Prospector?

Prospector Unified Catalog is integrated into the CSU-Pueblo Library Catalog, which is being replaced by a new catalog, so Prospector must be turned off until the library has completed the replacement.

Therefore, Prospector will be unavailable beginning October 20, 2016.

While Prospector is unavailable, CSU-Pueblo affiliates should use the alternate borrowing sources listed on this page.

Updated information on Prospector. As of June, 2017, the Library is currently testing our connection to the new server that will allow our institution to use Prospector again as a borrowing source.

Please contact the Research Help Desk for any assistance you may need, 719.549.2333.
