Welcome to the digital TRC library catalogue

The TRC has an extensive and growing collection of books and journals about textiles, clothing and related subjects. The items can be consulted during the opening hours of the TRC, but cannot be borrowed.

In the catalogue, you can sort the results by title, author, etc., by clicking on the column title. If you choose the 'advanced search' option, you will be able to search by title, author, year or period, isbn or key word. The number in the last column indicates where you can find the book in our library. A clickable title leads to a book review written by one of our contributors. Some of the titles in our library are also available for purchase in the TRC shop. In that case you will see a shopping cart icon. Click on the icon for information about the price of the book and how to order it.

If you have any questions or recommendations about the the catalogue, please contact us via our website.
