Prospector Help

  1. Search for an item in HPLD’s catalog first. If we don’t own what you need or if all of our copies are unavailable, click on the “Prospector” link in our catalog. Your search will be repeated in Prospector.
  2. Alternatively go directly to Prospector by clicking the colorful Prospector icon located above the library catalog search box. This will open the Prospector catalog and you may begin your search.
  3. View your results. If you would like the item to be sent to the Library for you, select the grey “Request It” button located to the right of the item title. You can also click on the item title to get more information about the item and the libraries lending it.
  4. You will be asked for your library affiliation. From the list of options, select High Plains Library District and click “submit above information”.
  5. Enter your full name, complete library card number, pick-up location preference, and then click “submit”.
  6. If you cannot find it in our Library catalog nor in Prospector, you can place an Interlibrary Loan request.
