Search for books, ebooks, media, and journal titles (but not specific articles) at Rolfing Library, books at other I-Share libraries, and books at libraries around the world.
Search multiple databases at one time. Check the "Full Text" box to limit to online articles.
If we do not have a copy of the book you need, or if our copy is checked out, your first request option will be I-Share. If I-Share does not have a copy, or if all I-Share copies are checked out or in transit, you may request a copy through WorldCat. Please note that we do not borrow required textbooks through WorldCat.
Before you can use I-Share, you will need to create an account. Go to the I-Share screen, click on "Login" and then "Create New Account." Your Borrower ID is just your Trinity ID number. Once you have an I-Share account, you can search the I-Share catalog for the book you want, then click on "Request this item" and complete the process. You may have the book sent from any I-Share library to any other I-Share library, if you live closer to another library than Trinity. You will get an email when the book is available for pick up. Note that most ebooks from other libraries are not available to you and journals are also not lent through I-Share. You may also walk in to any I-Share library and check out a book directly using your Trinity ID card.
You will use WorldShare to request books not available at Trinity or through I-Share and to request articles not available in either print or electronic format at Trinity. Before you can use WorldShare, you will need to set up an account. Fill out the form, and then you will receive an e-mail letting you know that your account has been approved and you can begin placing requests!
Zotero is a free bibliographic management program that one can use with any of these three browsers: Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. It allows one to download references from TrinCat, I-Share, WorldCat, and most of our databases, including ATLA, Academic Search Premier, and PsycInfo. After downloading references, Zotero can be used with its corresponding Microsoft Word (or Open Office counterpart) plugin to create parenthetical references/footnotes and bibliographies in many different citation styles. See our page here for help with Zotero.
