Services and General Information


Library services are arranged so that the Information Services Desk, located inside the main entrance on Level A, can be used as the first point for questions if you are unsure where else to start.  You can also use chat, email, call us at 860-297-2007 or send a text message to 860-458-4825 .


The Library is open daily during the fall and spring terms.  Our current hours are posted online and at the entrances to the building.  Alternative hours for holidays, interim periods, and summer sessions are also posted as necessary.

Using the Library

Research assistance is available late morning through the afternoon on weekdays.  Users seeking assistance should inquire at the Information Services Desk or schedule an appointment.   Additional information is listed under Research Education.

There is a First-Year student guide to Library and Information Services that highlights the major resources and services available to them, and provides information about the Seminar Librarians.

Borrowing privileges are automatically extended to all of our students and employees with a valid Trinity College ID. Certain non-Trinity affiliated guests may also borrow materials.  Photocopying and printing is available using your Trinity ID or by purchasing a guest copy card.  But also note that we have free scanning equipment in the Level A  study area.


Visitors are welcome but are asked to observe our visitor policies.
