Placing Books on Hold from Other School Libraries

Placing a hold on a book from another school library is easy. Please follow these steps:

  1. Click advanced search (in blue) in the above "East Greenwich High School Library Catalog" box.
  2. Click the login button in the top right hand corner.
  3. Type in your username and password (username is your five digit lunch code.  The password is EGR)
  4. Select "RICAT (All members)" from the "location" dropdown menu.
  5. Search for a book.
  6. Click on title of the book you want to place on hold.
  7. Click on the "Hold It" icon in the upper right corner (above green arrow).
  8. That's it. You're done.  We'll notify you via email when your book arrives.

Class sets for Teachers

It is often possible to get class sets of books through Inter-library loan.  If you would like to get a class set of books, please check with me to see if there are enough copies of the title available throughout the RICAT system.  If enough copies are available, please give me a copy of your class list, and I will request a book for every student.  Please plan in advance, as it usually takes about two weeks for all of the books to arrive.
