Salve Regina’s McKillop Library opened in 1991 and now contains over 150,000 print volumes and 215,000 e-books, 7,000 DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks, and maintains subscriptions to 50,000 electronic journals which are indexed in over 100 online databases. Remote access to most of these resources is available to students and faculty 24 hours per day via the library website (http://library.salve.edu). The library contains over 100 public workstations (PCs and Macs) located throughout the building that are available for research use. The library has four study rooms that contain workstationd, whiteboards and other presentation technologies; these are bookable online. A Learning Commons on the main floor consists of collaborative group workstations, as well as comfortable furniture and a small café. A multipurpose seminar room on the main floor is equipped with 26 workstations, a Smartboard, and an instructor’s workstation for group hands-on instruction classes. This room also contains a central conference table with 14 recessed laptop computers and may be booked by student groups when not in use for other functions.
The library is a member of HELIN (Higher Education Library Information Network), a library consortium of nearby academic institutions and hospitals which share a common library system. Through HELIN, students and faculty may initiate direct online requests to borrow over six million items jointly held by member libraries. The library participates in a daily statewide library delivery service that provides items requested from other libraries. Salve Regina students may use all of these library facilities, and check out materials onsite by showing a valid Salve Regina identification card. In addition, the library is a member of the Consortium of Rhode Island Academic and Research Libraries (CRIARL), a larger group of Rhode Island research libraries that also shares resources. Requests for other research materials not held by either HELIN or CRIARL libraries may be requested online via an electronic interlibrary loan form.
The library is also a partial United States Government Documents Depository Library and makes its resources available to the Newport community at large. For more information on library services for graduate students please go to: http://library.salve.edu/ges/
