Information for Graduate & CE Students
One-on-One Consultations: Librarians are happy to work closely with graduate students on their research. We offer one-on-one consultations in person, by phone, Skype, or via virtual conference software. Call us at 401-341-2289 or fill in a research consultation request today.
McKillop Library Books Sent to Your Home: If you live outside of Rhode Island, we are happy to loan and ship Salve Regina library books to you. Using the library catalog you can locate materials that are on our shelves. After locating a book you would like, simply use the interlibrary loan request form for books. Be sure to indicate that you are an Online Graduate Studies student and you would like the book shipped to your home; you may indicate this in the "note field". Please note that our lending agreements with other libraries preclude us from sending HELIN or interlibrary loan books through the mail.
To request books not held at Salve: ILL books MUST be picked-up in person and dropped off at the Salve Library. ILL books cannot be sent to other libraries for pick-up, nor can they be mailed to your address. Only use ILL for books that are not available through HELIN libraries. You can request books that are not available through HELIN if you can come to pick them up at McKillop Library.
Scan and Deliver: If you need one chapter from a book or a journal article that McKillop Library only has in print, we can scan and send you a link to the material. Use the library catalog to locate materials that are on our shelves. After locating a chapter or article you would like, simply use the interlibrary loan request form for book chapter or journal article. Be sure to indicate that you are an Online Graduate Studies student in the "note field". We cannot scan whole or large portions of items due to copyright; however a whole journal article is acceptable. In most cases, the article/chapter will be sent as an email attachment to your Salve e-mail.
Use interlibrary loan: To request articles: Often you will locate an article in a database or a bibliography that is not available in full-text. In such a situation you can request the article using the interlibrary loan form for articles. In most cases, the article will be sent as an email attachment to your Salve e-mail.
Use the interlibrary loan request form for books. For more information, see our Interlibrary Loan page.
