Welcome back, Prospector!

Welcome back, Prospector! DU Libraries is pleased to announce that Prospector borrowing services have returned after a long hiatus. During the spring and summer of 2016, the Libraries migrated to a new catalog system which required us to temporarily suspend Prospector services. DU patrons may now request materials from other Colorado libraries through the Prospector system.

To access Prospector, choose the link from the Libraries’ homepage or go directly to the site at http://prospectorhome.coalliance.org/. When requesting material, be sure to select University of Denver as your affiliation and then enter your name and DU ID number.

Links to Prospector are also available within the Compass system under the “Get it” tab for each Catalog item.

Prospector loans normally take 2-5 days to arrive at DU, but please allow a little extra time during these initial weeks when processing may be busier than normal. While DU patrons may borrow from other libraries, it will be a few weeks before other Colorado library patrons are able to borrow books from DU Libraries.

Prospector is a unified catalog of 23 academic, public, and special libraries in Colorado and Wyoming. Through Prospector you have access to over 20 million books, journals, DVDs, CDs, videos and other materials held in these libraries. With a single search, you can identify and borrow materials from the collections and have them delivered to the DU Libraries.

Because our server can only join one INN-Reach group, such as Prospector, we will no longer be connected to Mobius.  We still provide access to WorldCat, for borrowing materials not available in our collections or in Prospector.
