One year ago, the tri-college libraries launched the new library catalog and now have just released Version 2 of Tripod. It includes many improvements and new features.
Authentication by campus email
Instead of your 14-digit library bar code, you can now use your campus email and password to access your library account, request and renew items, etc. You will need to use your bar code the first time you log in, but after that you only need to use it for E-ZBorrow or if you prefer to work in Tripod Classic. More details, including step-by-step instructions, can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/bxxvo5c
In order to provide easier access to our most important resources, such as the New York Times, JSTOR, and Web of Science, we’ll be displaying them prominently in a new space on Tripod called Best Bet.
Add to Favorites
You can mark favorites within Books & More to save for later use, add to lists, export, cite, print, and email.
Running a search in Tripod will now display results from related course, subject, and research guides.
Digital Collections Channel
Searches in Tripod will also display content from Bryn Mawr and Haverford Special Collections, Friends Historical Library, and the Peace Collection.
Improved Relevance Ranking
Books & More search results have been adjusted to provide better results.
We hope these features and improvements enhance your library research experience.
