CCRI libraries in Lincoln, Providence and Warwick have laptops that students can borrow for academic or personal use during library hours.
Any CCRI student with a library account can visit the library circulation desks and check out a laptop for up to three hours. The computers are equipped with the full Microsoft Office suite and provide Internet access. Students should bring a USB flash drive if they want to save their work.
Students are not allowed to remove the laptops from the library but, otherwise, there are no restrictions; students are free to use them for anything from writing an essay to updating their Facebook pages.
