Don’t let research keep you indoors - our article databases and chat research help services are available wherever you have internet access! http://web.uri.edu/library/ (We’ll only be slightly jealous if you’re messaging us from the beach…)

Finding yourself with a little spare time this summer? Check HELIN for some of those books you’ve been thinking about reading. (Sometimes those books with long wait times in Ocean State Libraries have a shorter wait list in HELIN!)
