What is CTW?

The acronym CTW names Connecticut College, Trinity College, and Wesleyan University. Wesleyan and is the name of a consortium of the libraries at these three schools. As a student at Trinity College, you have the same borrowing privileges at Conn and Wesleyan as you have here at Trinity. For example, you can borrow books for 28 days and renew them 8 times.
