Important Announcement: Rensselaer Troy and Hartford Libraries Integration

Effective August 25th, the first day of fall semester classes, Rensselaer’s Troy Folsom and Hartford Cole campus libraries will be integrated. All online, electronic library materials that have been available to Troy campus students will also be available to Hartford campus students via the unified online website – RensSearch (Rensselaer Libraries).

In addition, Hartford campus students will utilize the online interlibrary loan function of RensSearch to order print materials and journal articles from Troy. The materials will be delivered to Hartford student’s homes via UPS, along with a pre-paid mailer for return delivery. Hartford students will also have access to the RensSearch Ask A Librarian reference service.

If Hartford students have any questions about the integration, please contact Linda Knaack at or by phone at 860.548.2493. 

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