Important Announcement: Rensselaer Troy and Hartford Libraries Integration

Rensselaer Troy and Hartford Libraries Integration
Rensselaer’s Troy libraries and Hartford’s Cole library have been integrated.  All electronic books, journals and databases that have been available to Troy campus users are now also available to Hartford affiliated users via the online website – RensSearch (Rensselaer Libraries).  

In addition, Hartford affiliated users can request print books and other materials online from Folsom Library  which will be delivered to them via United Parcel Service (UPS), along with a pre-paid mailer for return delivery.  All Rensselaer users also have access to the RensSearch Ask-A-Librarian reference service.

Welcome Hartford affiliated users to the integrated Rensselaer Libraries!
For more detailed instructions, go to RensSearch ( and click on the Hartford Affiliated Users link.

If Hartford students have any questions about the integration, please contact us or call the Folsom Library Service Desk at (518) 276-8310.

We are working to make this transition as smooth as possible and thank you for your understanding.
