Need a book the library doesn’t have? Try Prospector!



Are you looking for a book, DVD, or CD that’s not available at Strauss Library? The Prospector borrowing system includes many libraries within Colorado, as well as the University of Wyoming. It allows users to request items from any participating library and have them sent via courier to their local library for pickup. This service is free for all cardholders of Prospector member libraries.

For students, staff and faculty on the CU Anschutz campus, ordering an item is as easy as going to, searching by title or keyword, and then entering your name and student/employee number after selecting ‘Request’. Material will be delivered to our library; we’ll send you an email when your item is ready for pickup. Most items take an average of 3-5 business days to arrive.

Prospector opens up a whole new world of borrowing choices- give it a try!
