Message to Faculty re: Library Services

Just a quick reminder that the Library and Archives is open virtually, and our team members are available to support your needs during regularly scheduled hours.

Our librarians, archivists and information specialists continue to work to introduce new digital services and collections to support the online delivery of Trent’s academic programs. We’re working closely with Trent Online and the Centre for Teaching and Learning to seamlessly integrate information resources into the online curriculum in time to support students taking courses this summer.

And, while access to the print collections is not available, we stand ready to help you find alternatives to the print sources you seek for your courses or your research.

So, please remember, we’re here whenever you need our support. You can reach us at

You and your students can also access the library online at

Keep well and stay healthy!
