About Savage Library

Welcome to the Leslie J. Savage Library at Western State Colorado University. From expert librarians to access to resources across Colorado and the world, Savage Library is here for you! Although you may not be on campus, we want to support you and your studies!

Your Library Account

All current students of Western State Colorado University will have a library account. Most students are automatically loaded into our system, but some accounts do not make it into the load, for various reasons (i.e. late registatration, etc). If you find that you cannot access your library account, please contact us. We would be happy to activate your account for you.

Once you have a library account, you may use your barcode number to access your account online. You will be able to view which items you have checked out, when they are due, and how many renewals you have already made on each item. You may also renew items online.

Additionally, you may view which books you have on hold through our Patron Placed Holds system (Marmot and Prospector). (Interlibrary Loans do not show in this system). If you choose to opt into the service, you may view your 'reading history'. You can also set up lists and rate/review items in our catalog.

You may view your profile, which lists your current contact information and any fines you might have on your account. You can also tweak some other options in this area.

Finally, if you log in to your account and begin searching in our catalog, you can save your searches into your account.

A link to your account can be found in our catalog and on our homepage. Or, just click the button below!
