    • Finding Textbooks
      The Auraria Library does not buy textbooks for courses. However, sometimes professors leave their copies at the library for people to borrow. Sometimes students donate their copies. Occasionally other libraries will lend you copies of a textbook. This tutorial teaches you how to explore these three options.
    • Prospector
      Prospector is a catalog that shows which libraries hold materials across Colorado and Wyoming. Search it if you cannot find what you want at Auraria Library.
    • eBooks
      Electronic books, or "ebooks," are entire books that have been scanned. You can read them on your computer whether you're inside the library or on the other side of the world. This tutorial will show you how to find and use ebooks that Auraria Library provides.
