Trent University Library & Archives continues to offer electronic collections and virtual services. As part of the University’s limited and reduced campus presence, Bata Library and the Durham GTA Campus Library & Learning Centre are closed and physical collections are unavailable. Virtual services and support are available by contacting library@trentu.ca. Check for updates regularly on our COVID-19 Alert Page.

Curbside Pickup for Faculty & Graduate Students is available starting June 23rd.

Learning & Liaison Librarians

Located in Library Research Consultation Centre (BL 208), behind the living green wall of Bata Library.

Currently the LRCC is closed, until the campus is fully open, but we are actively working from home.

Each Academic Department at Trent has a Learning & Liaison Librarian assigned to represent it. Individual faculty members or departments may contact this person for:

  • General instructional services from the Library.
    • Exception: requests for instruction / assistance in MaDGIC or Archives should go directly to those departments.
    • Information on the types of instructional services offered is available on our Library Skills Instruction page.
    • Research assistance & group instruction.
