Student Services

The Adams Library offers many services for RIC students, including borrowing, access to databases, guides for technology, and more. The RIC ID card functions as a library card, allowing the use of said services.


Books are lent for 28 days, with an overdue grace period of 7 days. Browsing books, which include best sellers, are located past the restrooms on the third floor and are available for 14 day loans. DVDs and CDs use the same lending periods as Browsing books. For questions about your library account, contact the Circulation Desk at 401-456-8126.


Research and Accessing Databases Off Campus

In order to use RIC’s many offered databases while not on campus, you will be prompted to log in with your RIC User ID and password. For questions about performing research and finding articles in databases, contact the Reference Desk at 401-456-8125.
