College of the Rockies Library has many resources in print and online.  Learn about all the different ways we can help you find the information you are looking for.

Search All

Search All is an online research tool that 'pulls together' almost all of our Library resources so that they can be explored using a single search box.  In other words, rather than searching the COTR Catalogue for books and a database such as Academic Search Complete for journal articles, you can do a Search All search and get results which includes books, e-books, journal articles, videos, and government documents in one list.  You could think of Search All as the Library's version of Google.
