Due to the migration to our new Integrated Library System (ILS), the Denver Public Library is not connected to Prospector at this time. DPL is working with all involved parties to restore access to Prospector. With outstanding technical issues, and the need for extensive testing and staff training, the Library cannot provide a specific timeline for return of the service.
