The Trinity College Digital Repository has grown to become a rich and vast archive of materials that tell the history of the college. This spring, the Library is launching a new way to feature these materials in the form of online exhibits. Using the Omeka platform, we have built an inaugural digital exhibit on Trinity College in 1914, titled “100 Years Ago at Trinity.”
Items in the exhibit are taken from the Trinity Tripod, and the Trinity Ivy, and include articles, photographs, advertisements, and other pieces that when grouped together paint a picture of life in the academy in 1914. The exhibit is organized around themes such as student life, the curriculum, the physical plant, and athletics. We hope this new presentation of digital objects will help uncover and bring life to Trinity archive materials.
The Library has three Cambridge databases on trial for the Trinity community until April 30, 2014:
- Cambridge Companions Online (http://universitypublishingonline.org/cambridge/companions/)
- Cambridge Histories Online (http://universitypublishingonline.org/cambridge/histories/)
- Cambridge Edition of the Works of Ben Jonson Online (http://universitypublishingonline.org/cambridge/benjonson/)
All three trials can be accessed on the “Reference Tools” page, through the Digital Collections tab on the Library home page.
Further information about each is below. Please explore these resources and send your feedback to email@example.com. We want to know what you think!
Cambridge Companions Online: Subject or theme based collections of content, covering literature, philosophy, religion, classical civilization, music, and art history.

The Library now subscribes to Web of Science, the best known database for cited reference searching. It includes Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, and Arts & Humanities Citation Index. The library has just purchased the complete backfiles, so dates of coverage are from 1900-present (SCI, SSCI) and 1975-present (A&HCI). In addition, our subscription to BIOSIS now runs on this platform.
