OneSearch is the main search box you'll find on the library home page. It searches our library catalog, Chinook, plus a whole bunch of other great resources including article databases. If you know you need a book or journal, or to find out if we have a subscription, you can just use Chinook Classic.
Chinook has its own tips and search techniques. Check out the link below to learn how to use it like a pro!
This list includes subscription databases, open access databases, and links to online resources.
This graphic explains the process for using "Find it at CU," available in most databases and Google Scholar, to locate the full text of an article.
To check out materials from University Libraries, you can take them to the Circulation Desk with your Buff OneCard. We also have self-check-out stations. To find out more, click on the link below:

Use Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) to request electronic materials from other libraries. You can also request physical materials like books that are not available at CU or in Colorado through Prospector.
