Tripod Catalog: A How-To Guide

As of December 20, 2018 Tripod has a new look and feel with a more streamlined experience, improved access to library materials, and a more intuitive way for you to discover resources.

Tripod's improved user interface brings:

  • Fewer clicks to access journal articles and other online resources

Plus, you still have:

  • Combined access to both print materials and online e-resources
  • Easy-to-tailor search results using active content filters in the sidebar
  • Full-text access to online resources from on- and off-campus
