Find Books in Our Library

Library Catalog

Use one of three different search options available in the library catalog. The link above will take you to the keyword search interface.  You can also choose to do an advance keyword search or if you have specific titles, author names, or other specific information, you can use the specific search functions located in the right hand toolbar of the advanced search page.

Most of the materials on Spanish-language literature are available in the PQ call number range on the library's 4th floor. 

Browse the Spanish-language Film Collection

The library has numerous Spanish-language films located together in the media collection on the library's third floor.  To facilitate browsing, these films are located together in the PN 1997.2 S6 call number range.

Use the library catalog to locate specific films by title, director, actor, etc.  To generate a comprehensive list of all Spanish-language films, set your search field to "LC Call No." and enter PN1997.2 S6, and limit the results to "Video Collection".

Search All Libraries


While our library holds close to a million volumes, there are millions of other texts available from other libraries.  Use WorldCat to search for additional books and book chapters related to your topic.  As you search, items from your results list that are available in our library will have "Trinity University Library" noted next to the title.

If you find a useful text that is not available from our library, click on the title and then find the "Send Request to ILLIAD" option.  This will help you to complete the interlibrary loan request form quickly and easily!  Remember to give at least a week, sometimes a bit more, to receive items that must be sent through the postal service.
