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.

During the suspension of services, you will not be able to request items through the University of Denver, but you can still access Prospector from another area library.

Here are some tips from the Denver Public Library (DPL) to help you get started:

Don't have a library card with DPL?
As a Colorado resident or a student at a Colorado University, you are eligible for one. Check out DPL's guide to Get a Library Card to find out how easy it is to sign up.

Looking for the nearest DPL branches?

The three closest branches to campus are
Ross-University Hills Branch Library
Eugene Field Branch Library
Decker Branch Library

You can also visit the DPL Locations page to find the branch closest to you.

Living on campus and wanting to take RTD?

You can take the bus and/or the light rail to all three of the locations listed above:


A: Ross-University Hills Branch
B: Eugene Field Branch
C: Decker Branch

For specifics or to check for RTD service to your preferred branch, check out the RTD system map or the RTD Trip Planner.

If you have any questions about requesting Prospector items through other local libraries, or about other requesting options during the temporary suspension of DU's access to Prospector, please contact the Lending Desk (303-871-3707) or the Research Center at University Libraries.
