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.

Off-Campus Access Bookmarklet

Could you use a quicker way of connecting to our licensed library resources from off-campus?  This bookmarklet might just be the answer.

Add this link to the bookmarks of your favourite browsers: Get It! Trent. Or drag this button:  Get It! Trent 

Then, whenever you come across an online document that denies you access, or asks you to pay for it, click the bookmark. 

  • You'll be routed through our proxy server, which asks you to login with your myTrent username/password. 
  • If the document IS available through our library, you'll have access.

This works for e-books, e-journals, databases - anything made available through Trent Library purchases and subscriptions.

Things to Note

  1. It only works for resources our library has paid for.  If the article is free, or if we don't subscribe to that journal, it can't link you through and you'll probably get an error.
  2. It uses javascript.  You must have javascript enabled in your browser.
  3. If you're searching Trent databases (linked from our website), the  Get It! Trent button is already embedded, and you shouldn't need this.
  4. If you're searching Google Scholar, you can change the settings to enable the Get It! Trent button and save this extra step. See how.
