Due to the new printing system and the new Canon multi-function devices, we’ve been able to make a few improvements over winter break. We have added 11×17 and legal sized page options, dramatically reduced the cost of color printing, and fixed some of the issues you might have experienced with the new system. We recommend you try the new Canon multi-function printer/copier/scanner in Library’s A level 24-hour zone. We are adding another Canon multi-function machine on the B level very soon as well. These devices cost less and offer more options than the old print release stations. If you would like advice on how to use the new devices to print limited page ranges, add staples, or anything else, please feel free to ask us at the Information Services Desk on Level A or visit our website!
In addition to the cell phone charging station located near the scanners on Level A, we now have a charging station for Mac laptops and IPhone and Android cell phones. (Unfortunately, Windows computer chargers are very specific to the individual manufacturer and may damage devices, so we are unable to provide those.) Just look for the signs on Level A like the one below or ask for help at the Information Services Desk.
Need a quiet study space?
In general, the higher you go up in levels within the library, the quieter the space becomes.
- Level 3 is designated Silent Space
- Level 2 is designated Quiet Space
- Level 1, A and B are Social Spaces
- Level C also tends to be a quiet space, although seating on this level is limited.
You can, however also book a Group Study Space located on levels 3, 2 and 1 within the library.
The Library provides a variety of spaces and tools to facilitate research and learning in the Library. Group study rooms may be reserved by Trinity College students for groups of two or more for group study or other curricular activities. Time slots are 1 hour long but one can select up to 2 time slots per day, for a maximum of 2 hours.
Reservations require a valid @trincoll.edu email, and room access requires a current Trinity ID.
Unreserved rooms that are empty after the start of a time slot are available on a first-come basis until the next scheduled time period. Otherwise room use requires reservations through the web form, linked below.
