Borrowing from Connecticut and Trinity Colleges and the Boston Library Consortium

Due to COVID-19, we may encounter delays in securing certain materials from other libraries.

Connecticut College, Trinity College, and Wesleyan University make up the CTW Consortium. CTW members can borrow books, videos, and other materials from all three collections.

CTW members can visit the Wesleyan University, Connecticut College, or Trinity College Libraries in person to check out materials with a valid institution ID, or request items through the online catalog. When you request an available item from a CTW library, you will typically receive it within 48 hours.

To request items from CTW, search for the item in OneSearch, click the item title, then select the Request button.

Due to COVID-19, there may be delays in obtaining items offered by lending libraries, and some items may not be available.

The Boston Library Consortium (BLC) permits Wesleyan faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students to use BLC member libraries and borrow materials in person at those libraries.

To obtain access to the BLC libraries, you must request a consortium card from EunJoo Lee, Head of Access Services at Olin Library ( Please see BLC member visitors' information page for more details about using BLC libraries.
