More eResources Available Through Prospector
As a Mesa County Libraries cardholder, you can request Springer and Elsevier ebooks (mostly textbooks) as well as streaming videos from Films on Demand (32,000+).
The easiest way to locate ebooks is to do a search on Springer or Elsevier and include the subject, e.g.: "Springer microbiology".
You can locate streaming video by doing a search for "SILLVR FOD". To narrow the search, simply type in a subject, e.g. "SILLVR FOD cooking". You can use the facets on the left hand side of the screen to further limit your search.
IMPORTANT: You have to click on the “Request it” option and complete the form. You can’t just click on the link embedded in the record. You will be emailed the file to access as soon as possible.
