The Watkinson Library at Trinity College collects, preserves, and makes accessible unique and rare materials in selected subject areas, and promotes the use of these materials by the Trinity community, scholars, and the public. Its goal is to advance scholarship and further the educational, research, and service missions of Trinity College. The Watkinson Library serves as a public research library, the rare book and special collections of Trinity College, and the repository of the College archives. Our vision is to create a welcoming space for all to encounter and interact with the cultural materials we hold, and to facilitate creative and intellectual production based on or inspired by our collections. The Watkinson is located on Level A of the Raether Library and Information Technology Center.
