You can find books and movies in OneSearch, but it's easier to find them using the catalog because unlike OneSearch it doesn't also search all of our articles and periodicals. To reach the catalog, select the Books/Catalog tab above the OneSearch box on the library home page.
Check your spelling. The catalog is very picky.
Did you search for a long phrase? Use the fewest number of words possible.
Try changing your search terms, or search other libraries with Prospector.
Add an additional search term to get more specific.
To find a print book, first identify the correct section of the library by checking the location of the book. Most books are in the "Main Collection" which is on the 3rd floor.
Reading LC Call Numbers
If you are unable to locate the book or the book is missing, ask for help at the Circulation Desk.
No UCCS or Prospector holdings for your book?
Request that the book be delivered to the Kraemer Family Library by using ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan).
First time users must create an account. You will need to use your UCCS email address and student ID number.
