The College Catalogue contains details of all printed books, serials and audio-visual materials. All books are also entered in iDiscover, the online catalogue for the libraries of the University. However, iDiscover does not provide location information or current status of Trinity’s collections so we recommend using both when looking for a specific resource. We have produced a short video on how to use our catalogue.
The James Catalogue contains details of all Western medieval manuscripts.
The Modern Manuscripts Catalogue contains details of the College’s modern manuscripts.
