Prospector Temporarily Suspended

The Health Sciences Library is in the process of migrating to a new system. Beginning Monday, November 7, 2016, Prospector services will be temporarily suspended as part of the migration. Prospector services will be restored within the next several months. We will notify the Anschutz Medical Campus community when services resume. Please watch for updates. You will still have options for requesting materials during the Prospector downtime.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Please create an ILL (Illiad) account to place requests for books and articles held at other libraries. ILL services will be limited to academic material. ILLiad is a free service for most Anschutz Medical Campus faculty, staff, and students. Please visit our webpage. For questions and help with Interlibrary Loan, please contact the ILL office at copydocs@ucdenver.edu or call 303-724-2111.

Your Public Library: If you are looking for popular fiction or leisure reading, please visit your local public library. Most libraries in the metro area are members of Prospector and can help you with this service.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during our migration process! We will do our best to make the transition as smooth as possible for you. Questions? Please contact the service desk at 303-724-2152. For specific questions concerning Prospector, please contact Tami Hoegerl at 303-724-2175 or tamara.hoegerl@ucdenver.edu.
