Getting to the LSA Website (Library Guide)
The LSA Library has a collection of approximately 10,000 print books. Beyond that, our Electronic Resources, (Databases, E-Encyclopedias, and Academic Websites) expand our resources at least a thousand fold! Be sure to visit the Library Guide and/or the physical library on the second floor of the Main School Building so that you can locate just what you need to excel at your homework and class projects!
This will allow you to:
1) Open and Read an E-Book
2) Place a hold on a book from another high school library.
To request a book follow these steps:
*Click Advanced Search Link (in blue) in the above "Books at LSA Library" box.
* Select "All High School Libraries" from the "Location" dropdown menu.
*Search for a book.
*Click on title of the book you want to place on hold.
*Click on the "Hold It" button in the upper right corner (above green arrow).
You're done. We'll notify you when your book arrives!
If you still can't find a book for your topic, try the RI Public Library catalog or HELIN (college/university) catalog.
