Each fall, Trinity’s research librarians teach instruction sessions which introduce First-Year students to the research process. Librarians will conduct about forty such sessions this fall. Through these sessions, librarians collaborate with students and their First-Year faculty to engage in lively discussions about the nature of undergraduate research. Students also have an opportunity in the sessions to search for information sources for their seminars’ research-based projects.

Fall Course Reserves Program

Dear Trinity Faculty Members,

This program allows the greatest access to the material for the students in your courses. Items eligible for course reserves are print books and media material owned by the Trinity library or one of our Consortium partners in the CTW Consortium (Connecticut College or Wesleyan University). Also eligible for course reserve are personal copies of books and media material.

You may submit your Reserve Requests, early, by August 10, 2013, to ensure timely processing for the fall. Any requests received after that date will be processed in the order they are received.
