Faculty Online Instruction and Distance Learning: Access to Library Resources


Hello, we hope that you are doing well. This guide is meant to be a reminder that the library is here and available to help with instructional and student success. All the virtual resources that the library normally carries are still available for you and your students. Please don't hesitate to email or call about any questions. Please refer your students to the virtual reference meeting form to request an appointment with a librarian. 

Some extra measures we are taking to help with student success are outlined below. Please refer these sources to your students. 

Accessing Course Reserves

Fill out the Books on Reserve Scan Request 

We are limiting physical access to the course reserves but staff can still scan chapters into a PDF and send it to your email. If you are unsure if we have books for your class just ask us at TRINITYLIBRARY@TRINITYDC.EDU
