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 which is used for borrowing materials at RIC and HELIN libraries, as well as paying for printing.
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 Borrowing Services Desk at 401-456-8126.
