Counseling & Human Services Research: Finding Books

Finding Books

Subject vs. Author

Subject Search = find books written about Piaget, such as critiques or biographies

Author Search = find books written by Piaget, his original research


If you are off campus, you will be asked for your UCCS login before being able to view an e-book.

Subject Headings

Remember, if you find one book on your topic, you can click on the subject to do a new search for that same subject.

Advanced Search

Use the advanced search to narrow by format or location. For example, if you only want electronic resources or if you are only looking for reference books, narrow to those locations.

Requesting Books

If one of our items is currently checked out, you can request it and the book will be held for you when it is returned. However, there may be another copy available in Prospector, so remember to check there. Prospector requests usually arrive within 3-4 business days.

Finding Items on the Shelf

Main Collection books are on the third floor, sorted by call number. The second (main) floor contains our Periodicals, Reference Books, Children's Literature, Curriculum Collection, Government Documents, Popular Reading, Videos and Reserves.

Search the Kraemer Library Catalog

Use the Kraemer Library Catalog to find books, ebooks, DVDs, streaming movies, CDs, and streaming music owned by the library. You cannot find articles in the catalog! Need articles for your assignment? Search in a database.

Search Prospector

Is our copy of a book checked out? Not enough books about your research topic at UCCS?

Use Prospector to search the catalogs of other libraries in Colorado! If an item you want is available, place a request and it will be delivered to Kraemer Family Library. You'll get an email when the item arrives.
