IMPORTANT UPDATE on Library Book Returns !


One of the most popular questions we have been getting the past week is ‘How do I return my Library books ?’ There are currently three options right now:

1. If you are on campus packing up your dorm Monday – Friday from 9 am – 2:30 pm, you can drop them off at the library, which will be staffed weekdays from 9 am – 3 pm.

2. If you are on campus packing up your dorm Saturdays and Sundays, there will be a clearly marked bin outside our loading dock doors (facing the AIC building) which you can deposit all your borrowed books (no tech items, please!) .

3. If you can’t take advantage of the first two options, you can leave your borrowed books and tech items in your dorm, and Res Life said they will be collecting the items and returning them to the Library.

Under NO circumstances can you return your Bookstore ‘rentals’ to the Library – you must return them yourself to the Bookstore. We are not responsible for returning your loans to the bookstore. No exceptions!!

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Library at 401-232-6125 (Monday – Friday, 9 am – 3 pm) or chat with a librarian in the chat box on our homepage.

Order your Inter-Library-Loan (ILL) books NOW


There’s just a few weeks left before finals start…if you’re a student or a professor, and you anticipate needing books from other libraries before finals, please order your books without delay! Requests can take up to two weeks for processing and delivery – so the sooner you order, the better chance you will have of getting your books promptly. Remember – always order a hard-copy, since E-Books can’t be borrowed from other libraries.

SpRiNg into a Great Book and enjoy the Season!

Return your Library items before you leave for Winter Break!


Did you know that any overdue items on your account or any outstanding fines can prevent you from accessing your final grades this semester?  Before you leave for winter vacation, take a moment and check your account. Return any items which are over-due (or will be due) while you’re away  – including Athletics Collection books  –  and settle any fines on your account.   This way, you will have no trouble getting your final grades.
