The Alternative Libraries @ Trent initiative is a joint project of Sadleir House, OPIRG, the Trent Central Student Association, and the Trent Women's Centre. The goal of the project is to raise awareness and provide increased access to the various information resources that exist at Trent University.
To accomplish this, an online library catalogue was launched using a free open-source system known as Koha (http://www.koha.org/). The system allows each branch to catalogue their resources as well as provides circulation software capabilities if desired.
ALTi is currently housed and managed by Sadleir House. It is funded by contributions by the project partners as needed and most of the cataloguing work is done by volunteers. If you're interested in making a contribution of time, resources, money, or whatever else you can think of, please get in touch or check out further options on the 'Join ALTi' Page.
