Art & Architecture: Finding Books

Guide to art and architecture resources

Searching for E-Books

To find books you can access online, choose Advanced Search to the right of the main OneSearch box. This will allow you to enter your search terms and to select "E-books" from the list of material types. All of the titles in your results list will be accessible online. In the Results list, Click on an E-book title to go to the full record, and then use the links provided to access the E-book.  

OneSearch lets users save their searches by clicking on "Save query" next to the pushpin symbol above the results list. Or you can save individual titles by clicking on the same pushpin symbol to the right of a title. To access your saved searches and titles, log in, then go to the top of the library page and click on the pushpin symbol to the left of your name.  You'll see "My Favorites," with choice to view "Saved records, searches or history."

What is CTW?

The acronym CTW stands for the Connecticut College, Trinity College, and Wesleyan University consortium of libraries.  As a student at Trinity College, you have the same borrowing privileges at Conn and Wesleyan as you have here at Trinity. If you find an item in our OneSearch catalog which is owned by Connecticut College or Wesleyan, you can use the request function in the catalog record for it to be delivered to Trinity College library.  You will receive an email from the library when the item has arrived and is ready to be picked up. Pre-pandemic the turnaround time was only 2 or 3 days, although it might take a bit longer now.
