Search for books, ebooks, videos, and more

Kraemer Family Library offers three methods to search for books/ebooks, and multimedia.

The Kraemer Library Catalog allows you to search what is available in our collection.

Prospector allows you to search for and request print materials and multi-media (not ebooks) in other Colorado and Wyoming libraries.You may borrow materials that we do not own or that are currently checked out from Kraemer Family Library. Materials are delivered to the Circulation Desk at KFL through a courier that operates on weekdays.

OneSearch allows you to locate books/ebooks, multi-media, AND articles within our print and electronic collections.

Searching in the Kraemer Library Catalog

Subject Search uses a controlled vocabulary (Library of Congress Subject Headings) and will retrieve relevant items on your research topic. Subject search allows you to:

  • identify all items in the collection about that subject.
  • narrow your search through subject subdivisions.

Keyword search allows you to search for any word(s) in the subject, title, author, and content notes for all item records in the catalog. Keyword search allows you to:

  • locate items on your topic if you don't know the subject heading.
  • create searches that combine search terms as in the sample search below.
  • identify chapters in books about your topic.



Search Prospector: Classic Catalog
