Books in the TriCo Libraries

Use Tripod to find books held by the TriCollege libraries.  You can request books from the other TriCo schools and have them delivered to Swarthmore.

Use One Good Book to Find Others
When you've located a relevant book, there are several strategies you can use to find additional related works.
  • Search by the subject headings you find in the book's Tripod record--this will help you find other books on the same topic, classified with the same subject heading.
  • Consult the book's bibliography and use Tripod and library databases to track down some of the sources that author cited.

Books Beyond the TriCo Libraries

To find books that are not owned by the TriCo libraries, search by keywords and/or subject headings in WorldCat, and make interlibrary loan or EZ-Borrow requests.  Whenever possible, try to make your interlibrary loan requests early in the semester, to ensure that the books arrive with enough time left to write your paper.
