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.

Media Collection: Borrowing

Trent Library Media

All Trent University faculty, students and staff holding a valid library card may borrow titles from the Library's media collection. See the Borrowing Regulations.

Please use the booking option in Omni if you need access on a specific date.  See our help page for requests and booking  in Omni.

For information on equipment for viewing media, see Trent's IT Department.

Pick-Up and Return

  • Items that are available for pick-up can be obtained at the Library Service Desk.
  • Please return items to the book return slots.

Media from Other Ontario Institutions

Media requests for titles not available through the Trent Library are handled through the Interlibrary Loans via our online Media Form.

The ITMS database, maintained by the University of Waterloo, lists media available at Ontario Universities. If you wish to borrow a media title, conduct an ITMS search (also find this link on the Media Form) to confirm its availability in Ontario.

Lending between institutions must comply with copyright & licensing requirements.

Please note: most lending institutions require a minimum of two weeks notice to place requests.

If you require assistance or have questions, ask at the Library Service Desk or email library@trentu.ca.
