Prospector is the name of the consortium of libraries in Colorado and Wyoming that joined MOBIUS and expanded your access to even more books which you can request without charge.  There are a few things that you should know about finding the Prospector collections: :

1.  The Prospector materials do not appear in the MOBIUS catalog, so youwill need to search this tool separately.

2.  While you can request items just as you would from MOBIUS, you will need to first select MO--Bridges (our cluster); Webster doesn't appear on the drop down options.

3.  Because these libraries are further away, items are taking closer to 10 to 14 days rather than the standard 4-5 days for MOBIUS materals.  Therefore, you will want to check MOBIUS availability prior to requesting from Prospector.

If you have more questions, you can always contact our library staff assist you with this new resource.
