OneSearch is a discovery search platform where you can find articles, books, book chapters, films, and other materials in print and digital format. The dashboard has several features that will help you create folders (Projects) to organize your assignments, save materials to your folders and view your older searches. You will find Prospector under Supplemental Sources in the Dashboard.
Prospector is a group of Colorado and Wyoming Libraries and the quickest way to receive materials not available at CU. Prospector gives you access to 32 million books, journals, DVDs, CDs, videos and other materials. Find Prospector on your Dashboard under Supplemental Sources. If what you are looking for is not available in Prospector, you may be able to find it in MOBIUS, a consortium of Missouri libraries that give you access to 27 million materials.
When materials are unavailable in the Library Catalog, Prospector or MOBIUS, it is time to request the item through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
