How to Use the Trillium List Online

The Trillium List is a living document, and the lists and database will be updated and current for each new addition and change.


You may browse the Trillium List pages by grade level, course, subject area, etc., by using the expandable menu options to the left.


You may also search the List database using the boxes found on the Trillium List main page and the Search page, which may be accessed at any time by clicking on the Advanced Search link near the top of the page. Quick access to search is also available through the "Search Trillium List" box underneath, where results will automatically fill in as you type.

Choose from either All Items (the default) or Recently Added Items to retrieve only titles which have been added to the list in the past 30 days.


Select a specific part of the listing to search. You may choose:
  • Keyword (the default) to find words you would expect to see in the title, subject term, publisher, author, ISBN, or description.

  • More specific information such as Title, Author, Subject, Grade, Publisher or ISBN if you prefer your search terms only be found in a particular part of a textbook description.


Enter your search terms and click the Go button.


  • Use the fewest words necessary to describe what you want
  • Using more words will usually narrow your search and retrieve fewer textbooks.
  • The search function does not support "natural language", so use:
    calculus and functions instead of what do you have on calculus and functions
  • You may use phrases with quotes. For example:
    "Grade 11" or "Language and Writing"
  • Wildcards and truncation:
    Use _ (underscore) to stand for any single character, e.g., "wom_n" to find either "woman" or "women".
    Use % (percent) to stand for zero-or-more characters, e.g., "lizard%" to find both "lizard" and "lizards".
  • The words AND and OR are understood in their mathematical sense of "both" and "either", respectively. Without them, the search behaves as though AND were between each word (Boolean AND is assumed between words, i.e., found documents must include all terms unless you use OR between them)
