Bata Library

The intellectual heart of Trent University is our acclaimed Bata Library. Every part of Trent University depends on the library. It’s a place of discovery, offering the extraordinary riches of past learning where students and faculty collaborate to create new knowledge for the scholars of the future.

Our founders’ envisioned the library as the heart of Trent, a role it continues to occupy today. In the midst of a digitized world, the library is evolving in the ways that student learning and faculty teaching are evolving, but it is evolving in a way that will maintain it as the heart of Trent.

We have a vision for the library of the future that builds on a very distinguished history. We are asking for your help to make it a reality.
