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.

Strategize Your Search
Make sure you find relevant materials, and save yourself time and effort by planning your search rather than just trying different keywords.  Check the "Search Tips" tab for help planning a smart search.

Limit by Language

If you're looking for specifically French-language sources, you can limit your search by language by going to the Language tab on a Tripod search.
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.
