COVID-19 and the RIC Library
A guide to RIC Library services during the outbreak.
To limit browsing and preserve safety in the building, please find a RIC-owned title you want in the library catalog ahead of time. Click on the title, then click on the “Place Hold” button. You will be notified via email or text message when your title is available to be picked up. For help, please visit our Reference & Research Support site.
While COVID-19 restrictions are in place at Rhode Island College, the following will apply to renewals of Adams Library technology loans:
Up to 2 renewals will be allowed before technology items will be required to be returned. After the 1st renewal is granted, the technology item may be subject to recall. The patron's library account must remain current and in good standing in order to have renewals granted for technology items. If overdue fines have accrued on the library patron's account, the overdue fines must be paid before anymore technology loan checkouts.
Starting with summer session, the library will allow print course reserves. Items will not be quarantined. Faculty are strongly encouraged to submit e-reserves processing requests for book chapters and articles. Library staff are able to make 10% or less of a whole book available via e-reserves. Faculty are also encouraged to contact their library liaison in order to find electronic versions of print materials or alternative reading or viewing materials. Please use the Course Reserves Processing Request Form to submit materials. For questions, please contact Brian Baker, Access Services Supervisor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re a team of library faculty whose mission is to help you learn how to “Find Out”! You can ask us ANYTHING….not just about your academic work when you need books or journals or documents or brainstorming about topic development, but information of any kind.
Archives and Special Collections are open to RIC students, faculty and staff by appointment only, Monday through Friday, 9am-noon and 1pm-4pm. To make an appointment contact Molly Bruce Patterson, Digital Archivist & Special Collections Librarian, at email@example.com or 401-456-9653.
