Printing, Copying


Each student gets 250 free pages of printing each semester in the computer lab Whipple Hall     

You also have access to this printing allotment at Adams Library.

Photocopying at the Library costs 5 cents per page and works either with a copy card you can purchase at Borrowing Services desk OR with the value that can be put on your student ID by the Student ID/Campus Card folks in the Student Union.

Scanning, using the photocopy equipment, is free.


HELIN Library Consortium


The HELIN Library Consortium is a network of academic libraries in RI which share a library catalog. The constituents of HELIN institutions (staff, students, faculty) can borrow materials in person at any of the member libraries (remember to take your RIC ID with your library BARCODE on it!) or through the "Get It Through Interlibrary Loan" feature of the catalog.  An ILL request within Rhode Island generally takes 2-4 days to arrive. 

Electronic resources,  i.e. databases, eBooks, eJournals etc., are licensed to individual HELIN Libraries and can be accessed by RIC faculty/staff/students in person ( remember to take your RIC ID with your library BARCODE on it!).  But only faculty/staff/students of THAT HELIN institution can access them remotely from off campus.
