Research librarians are happy to meet with you over Zoom. You can schedule an appointment with a specific librarian or select "Anyone" if you're fine meeting with whichever of us is available at the time you book.
After you schedule your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions for connecting with a librarian during your scheduled time. Don’t worry, the experience will be pretty much the same as meeting in-person.
Research databases for journal articles, e-books, etc. are accessible off campus.
These are arranged in an A-Z list by database title. You may also search databases by name and subject within the A-Z list. You will be prompted to sign in with your Trinity username and password to access the full content of the databases. Check our step-by-step guide to accessing library databases off campus.
The Raether LITC also maintains a list of online subject and course guides to assist you in your research. Included within these are tools for citing sources.
Librarians will assist you with services, research and resources. Please feel free to contact us via email with any questions.
If you're on campus, you can always check print books out at the LITS Desk on Level A or by using the self-checkout station next to it. You will need your Trinity ID.
Many print books in our collection are also available in e-book format. Is there an e-book you need that is not currently available? Please complete the purchase request form and we will see if it is possible to purchase an e-book version.
E-books are easy to access, and you can read entire books, or sections of them, on most mobile devices. Check out our step-by-step instructions to accessing e-books from off campus.
If you are completely off campus, your local library may be able to help you obtain print materials, if they are open and filling requests. For most local libraries, you just need a library card from that library. In some cases, college and university libraries nearby may also help with resources like books and databases.
Check with each library to see what services are available to you what restrictions are in place for COVID-19.
If you are off campus and do not have a home internet connection, know that most library resources can be accessed from a mobile device with a cellular data connection (e.g. 4G). The same is true for Moodle and Zoom, both of which have mobile apps that can be found in the Google or Apple App stores.
Depending on geography or mobile data plan, you may not have access to a cellular data network. If this is the case, you have a few options.
