Request a book and it will be delivered to Chariho in about a week to 10 days. The service is free to all sutdents. When on the library catalog, log in at the top right corner of the screen. When searching for a book, select 'RICAT' in the location drop down menu and once you find what you are looking for, select "HOLD IT!' and you will receive a message stating that your book is on hold and you will be notified when it arrives.  
  • Interlibrary loan for non-Chariho students: 2 week loan period with 1 renewal. Payment of the replacement value of any lost item is required.
