Use Prospector to Access Millions of Books

Did you know that as an Adams State library cardholder you have access to more than 30 million books, DVDs, and CDs?

By using Prospector, you can request items from more than 40 public and academic libraries absolutely free!


If you can’t find the book you want in our catalog, scroll to the bottom of the page to see results from Prospector. Once you’ve found an available book, click “Request It,” select Adams State, and enter your name and library card number. Once your book has been delivered to the library you’ll get an email letting you know it’s ready to be picked up.


Getting books from Prospector usually takes about a week, so don’t wait until the last minute!


If Prospector doesn’t have what you’re looking for we can also order items through Interlibrary Loan.

If you don’t have a library card, or your library card is expired, contact the Nielsen Library circulation department at 719-587-7781 or
