eBooks and Interlibrary Loan

Find a Book/eBooks

Platt College Online Library Catalog is LibraryWorld and it  helps students locate books at Platt College. The catalog classification system is based on the library of congress call numbers. Did you find a book you want in another library or on Google Books that Platt doesn't have? Try inter-library loan. There are two options:

  1. Locate the book you want on the Prospector website , which will tell you if the book is in a Colorado library. You can let us know and we can borrow it for you and have it delivered to Platt College library.
  2. Not all Colorado libraries are on the Prospector catalog. Try worldcat and it will let you know also if there is the book in Colorado.
