Did you know the Library maintains an ongoing ‘wish list’ for e-resources? By faculty request, new online resources this semester include Encyclopedia of Race and Racism and Vital Statistics on American Politics 2015-2016. During the academic year, we review and set priorities, depending on available funds. Faculty may inquire with their library liaison or directly to Katie Bauer or Jennifer van Sickle. Review the wishlist here.
Trinity graduate Colin Gigl (English and Computer Science) has published a novel, The Ferryman Institute. Check it out from the library’s Leisure Collection in the Engelhardt Reading Room.

On Wednesday June 22nd at 8:00am, off-campus access to databases will be down due to system maintenance of the EZproxy server. We anticipate this will last no more than one hour.
The library will be open 8:30 – 4:30 Monday through Friday until classes start on January 25th.
Exceptions include: Friday, January 15, the library will close at 1:00 p.m. and Monday, January 18, the library will be closed all day for the Martin Luther King Day holiday.
As always, the 24-hour study areas will remain open for those with a Trinity ID.
There will be two changes to standard operating procedures in the Library due to Final Exams. First, we will accommodate your need to study late into the night by expanding the 24-hour zone into the south Reading Room on Levels 2 & 3. Second, we will not permit visitors into the Library during this time.
These changes are in effect from Sunday, December 13 until December 22, 2015.
Good luck on your finals and papers!
