Loan Periods

The Trocaire College Libraries have a collection of books, DVDs and print journals. Loan periods vary based on the type of material you check out. To find out if the library owns an item check our Library Catalog.

Does the library own a copy of the textbook for my class?

The Trocaire College Libraries have a Reserve Collection of the textbooks, in print or eBook format, for many of the courses taught at the college. However, some may be an older edition of the textbook that your professor has assigned you. A few textbooks are also available as eBooks. The eBooks may be read using your Trocaire UN/PW. The eBooks cannot be checked out but you may be able to print or save pages depending on the book publisher.

Please note that the libraries do not own ALL textbooks used here at the college.

To check out a printed textbook, stop at the main desk. A current Trocaire ID card is required to check out the textbook. A photocopy of the front and back of your Trocaire ID card is the only accepted substitution.

The textbook may only be used in the library. Read the Borrower’s Responsibilities to find out more.
