Printing, Copying

          Printing and photocopying at the Library costs 5 cents per page and works with the campus points on your student ID.  If you do not have your RIC ID with you, a copy card can be purchased for a $1.00 from the vending machine in the Photocopier, Printing and Microforms Area. Value can be added to your RIC ID using this machine, as well.

Each student gets 250 free pages of printing each semester in the computer labs in Horace Mann Hall and Whipple Hall

HELIN Library Consortium

The HELIN Library Consortium is a network of academic and special libraries in RI which share a library catalog. The ID-holding members of HELIN institutions (staff, students, faculty) can borrow materials on site at any of the member libraries or through the Request from a HELIN Library feature of the catalog.  HELIN loans generally take 2-4 days to arrive. 

Electronic resources,  i.e. databases, e-books etc., are licensed to individual HELIN Libraries and, therefore, can only be accessed remotely by cardholders at those institutions but RIC patrons can use the e-resources on site at any of the HELIN libraries.
