Library Services

Photocopying
The Library maintains two photocopiers, both on the first floor. The charge is 5 cents per page for the cash machine. Students may use the photocopier pass key only when directed by faculty or staff.

Network Printing
Students logged onto the Trinity network from anywhere in the Library Academic Building may print to a printer located in the library. The network printer is located near the door to the first floor Computer Lab.

Interlibrary Loan
Trinity Library is a lending and borrowing member of OCLC, an international network of libraries. A person with Trinity Library borrowing privileges may borrow a title from another library (a book or a journal article), through interlibrary loan so long as Trinity Library does not own the title. The lending rules, such as borrowing time and renewal rights, are determined by the lending library.

To order an interlibrary loan, first check the online catalog to verify that Trinity does not own the item. Then fill out the online Interlibrary Loan Form or the paper form available at the circulation desk.
