Online Collections

To qualify for access to our licensed online resources, alumni require an active MyTRENT account, available through the Alumni Office.  Contact them in person or by phone: 1-866-449-0072.

Access to our licensed online resources is restricted, based on individual agreements with suppliers.

  • Some suppliers allow Alumni access, while others do not.
  • We do our best to obtain Alumni privileges to online resources whenever feasible.

Use Databases A-Z to find licensed resources available to Alumni.

  • A blue lock icon: Alumni Resource icon indicates Alumni access, and you can limit your search to those.
  • A grey open-lock icon: Open Access icon indicates free/public resources, and these are also available to Alumni.


Archival Collections

Trent Alumni have the same privileges in the Archives as current Trent students.

This includes reduced photocopy charges.
