HISP 401 (Harrington): Finding Books

Where's the Trinity Catalog?

Once you begin typing in search terms, OneSearch gives you the option to search just the Trinity Catalog or just the Trinity Catalog plus CTW holdings. You can also choose where to search in Advanced Search.

You can also use Advanced Search, or the Resource Type filter on the left, to return only books and weed out other types of results.


How to best use OneSearch

Before you even begin searching in OneSearch, it's best to sign in using your Trinity network username and password.

Once you are signed in you can:

  • View full search results (some databases only show results when you're signed in)
  • Request books and other materials from CTW
  • Create favorites lists
  • Export citations to Refworks and Endnote Web
  • Renew books and videos that you have checked out from the library


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 11 times.

In addition to getting books faster through CTW than through Interlibrary Loan, you can also visit Wesleyan or Conn campuses and check out books directly from them.
