Services for East Greenwich Residents

New England Institute of Technology [NEIT] welcomes East Greenwich residents who are members in good standing with the East Greenwich Library. We are proud to be able to provide the residents of East Greenwich with access to our college library.

East Greenwich residents must be 18 years of age or older or accompanied by an East Greenwich resident over the age of 18 to use the NEIT library resources (see “Children’s Use of the Library and Resources," below). East Greenwich Resident privileges exclude remote access to licensed electronic resources. Although visitors may use library materials within the Library, some in-house resources may carry similar restrictions.

♦   Books may be borrowed by East Greenwich residents 18 years of age or older who come to the library, fill out an Application for Special Borrowing Privileges, and present a current East Greenwich library card and photo ID with current address (driver's license).

♦   Borrowing privileges are good for one year and may be renewed upon good standing.

♦   East Greenwich residents must present Library card for all borrowing transactions. Supplemental ID (picture ID/driver's license) may also be required.

♦   Loan period is 3 weeks. Books can be renewed once unless requested by another patron. Books can be renewed in one of three ways: 1) in person, 2) by telephone [401-739-5000, ext. 3409], or 3) online -- requires an ID and PIN set up at the Circulation Desk.

♦   Books for loan are limited to the circulating collections (Low Stacks, Tall Stacks and Oversize). Patrons may borrow up to 2 books at one time.

♦   Reference materials, periodicals and media do not circulate and are limited to in-house use only.

♦   Interlibrary loan is available to East Greenwich residents through their public library.

♦   The Library is open to the public. All non-circulating materials are limited to in-house use only.

♦   Access services available to East Greenwich residents:

  • Assistance in locating appropriate collections and services.
  • Access to library resources and collections* on a self-help basis (*Note: NEIT has entered into license agreements with the publishers of various copyrighted databases. Some of these agreements limit use of the database services to College faculty, students, staff and users on the library premises.)
  • Assistance with using the online catalog
  • Brief answers to reference questions.
  • East Greenwich residents may utilize library computers when not used by members of the College community.
  • Access to Subscription Databases: Subscription database use is restricted to on-campus use only. Password cards will not be distributed to East Greenwich residents. East Greenwich residents should use the databases provided by their public library.

Children's Use of the Library and Resources:

Since the NEIT Library collection and services are developed for the support of NEIT students, faculty and staff, few juvenile materials will be found here. For their safety and well being, children must be accompanied at all times by a parent or adult. Children must never be left unsupervised. Children under the age of 18 who are unaccompanied by an adult will be referred to Campus Security. Parents, not the Library, are responsible for children's use of the Library, including access to electronic resources and the Internet.
