Is the book that you want not available from HELIN? If it's a popular, non-scholarly title, check the Ocean State Libraries (OSL) Catalog. If it's available there, request it using your OSL card.
Still searching for an elusive title? If it's for a CCRI research project, you may need to request it as an Interlibrary Loan (ILL). View our ILL Policy and Procedures.
The CCRI Library is a member of the Higher Education Library Information Network (HELIN) Consortium.
The HELIN Library Catalog is the combined catalog of the Higher Education Library Information Network (HELIN). You'll locate books, journals, government documents, DVDs, e-books, and more by searching the catalog.
CCRI students may borrow materials from the circulating collections of the HELIN member libraries using their CCRI library card.
You may order materials from most HELIN libraries directly from the HELIN Library Catalog. You will need your library card to complete this transaction. Some materials may not circulate.
You may be able to order a book from Ocean State libraries from the InRhode Library Catalog, after first searching the HELIN Library Catalog. You will need your CCRI library card to request an InRhode loan. Only books not available from the other HELIN member libraries may be requested from InRhode; some materials may not circulate.
Materials that are not available at the HELIN or Ocean State libraries may be ordered through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). You must allow 2-3 weeks for delivery of ILLs. See our ILL Policy for further details. If you need assistance, please see a Reference Librarian.
