RILINK Consortium

 

The WWHS Library is a member of the RILINK (RI Library Information Network for Kids) consortium.  As RILINK members, we are able to participate in inter-library loan with nearly 150 other schools thoughout RI.  This means that WWHS students have access to over one million items, and are able to request books and other items.  These items are then delivered to the WWHS Library free of charge!  Students can request items through the WWHS library catalog or through the WWHS page at  http://www.ricat.net, and should see Mrs. Inman if they have questions about how to request items through inter-library loan.
