Welcome to the Library
Plan Your Visit
To ensure the safety of all staff and readers, face coverings are required in all Library spaces. From Monday 5 October access to the Library will require pre-booking.
Find Your Library
Access and Opening Hours
You need your student card (TCard) to enter the libraries and to borrow. The Trinity Live App can also be used to gain access to library spaces.
Each library building has its own opening hours, which change outside of term-time. The Library homepage always displays today's hours. You can see future times on our opening hours page.
Click and Collect
Because of the vast size of the collections, many books are in storage, but these can be retrieved for you. Stella Search will prompt you to place a Click and Collect request and you will receive an e-mail when your book is ready to be collected at the library of your choosing. Undergraduates may not remove these books from the Library.
Your Subject Librarian
Subject Librarians have individual websites packed full of quality online resources to use in your assignment, essay or other research. E-mail your Subject Librarian about your training needs: classes and one-to-one consultations can be provided on a range of information skills, including using the Library catalogue, how to cite references and avoid plagiarism, database searching, evaluating information, and EndNote.
Library HITS Classes
Join us for Library HITS (Helpful Information for Trinity Staff/Students), a series of taster sessions delivered online by the Library, and Student Learning & Development (SLD). Most classes last 50 minutes.
The printing, scanning and photocopying facilities in the Libraries are managed by IT Services and the Library, and provided by Datapac. There are multi-function devices (MFDs) in the Libraries. In order to use this service you must first credit your print account.
Most of Trinity, including all the libraries, has Wi-Fi that can be used with laptops, phones and tablets, but it needs to be set up for each device.
