Books @ PPCC Libraries

You may search for materials at either the Centennial Campus or the Rampart Range Campus libraries. A catalog search will find print books, reference books and electronic books, as well as DVDs and CDs.


Use Other Local Libraries

You may borrow books and use resources from other libraries in Colorado Springs. 

UCCS (University of Colorado at Colorado Springs)


Colorado College

You'll need to have your student ID and a public library card to check out items. There is generally a limit of 2 or 3 items that can be checked out at a time. You can use the databases available to UCCS or Colorado College students while you are in their libraries. 


PPLD (Pikes Peak Library District--public library)

The public library also offers a lot of good databases and titles. There are libraries throughout the city. 

Can't Find What You're Looking For?

Try requesting an item through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Need a book or an article that PPCC Libraries do not own? Then borrow it from another library. It's EASY!

If we do not have the materials you need, we can usually borrow them from another library. 
This service is available to PPCC students, faculty, and staff. Wait times will vary when using interlibrary loans, so try to request early. Request your interlibrary loans online or at the Circulation Desk.

  1. Fill in the form; pay close attention to the Required fields.
  2. Usually, you will not have to pay anything to get an interlibrary loan. If you do not want to pay any fees, mark the corresponding box.
  3. Click "Submit," and your request will go directly to our staff who will process your request and send it off to participating libraries.
  4. When notified, pick up your item at the PPCC campus library you specified on your request form.
  5. Most ILL items check out for 30 days, and you will be given your exact due date when you pick up your item.

Any questions? Ask a circulation or reference staff member.
