The Rolfing Memorial Library at Trinity provides a variety of resources to support robust scholarship and promote lifelong learning.
The library catalog, TrinCat, allows searching of the library’s collection of books, journals, DVDs, eBooks and audio books. TIU students have access to the collections of over 70 academic libraries in Illinois. Books can be requested through I-Share and usually arrive within a few days.
The library also provides access to over 70 article databases including ATLA Religion Database, PsycInfo, ERIC, JSTOR, LexisNexis and more. These databases provide full-text articles from over 30,000 online journals. Rolfing Library also collects online books, including e-book and audio book downloads. If they are not available in other forms, you can order virtually any book or article you want through interlibrary loan. Articles will be scanned and emailed from another library and sent to your personal email.
Extension students and those enrolled in online courses can take advantage of distance student services. Reference librarians are available to provide help by phone, email, chat, or text.
