Prospector Services Unavailable Starting April 30

The University of Denver Libraries is in the process of migrating to a new catalog system.  As part of this process, we need to temporarily suspend Prospector services beginning on April 30, 2016 until late summer.  All Prospector requests must be placed before this date. This suspension in services is required in order to allow us to upload new data and reconfigure our system to integrate with the Prospector system.  Prospector services will be available again starting late summer.  We will notify the DU community when Prospector services are restored.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  This migration to a new catalog system is necessary in order to improve the functionality of library systems and add enhanced searching features.

While Prospector is unavailable, there are still a number of options for requesting materials.

  • Request books and other materials through InterLibrary Loan. Please be sure to allow extra time for processing and transit of materials.  You may use WorldCat to search for items at other libraries and request them through InterLibrary Loan (ILL).  Please see our guide for directions on requesting materials using WorldCat.
  • If you are a member of a local public library, you can request Prospector materials through that library. Materials will be delivered to your local public library.
  • You may ask the library to purchase an item for our collection. For more information, please see our Suggest a Purchase page.

Thank you for your understanding.

If you need assistance requesting materials, please contact the Research Center at (303) 871-2905 or email
