​Catalogs & Databases


The HELIN Library Consortium is composed of eleven academic libraries and eleven special libraries. With the inclusion of Brown into HELIN in May 2002, library patrons have access to approximately 6 million items, including books, periodicals, electronic resources, videos, and audio materials, in a shared library catalog.
Borrowing library resources is reciprocal among member libraries and is facilitated through online catalog requests. The requested material is delivered using a delivery system maintained through the Rhode Island Office of Library and Information Services. Members of the PC community can request materials from any of the HELIN libraries.
The academic libraries are represented by Brown University, Bryant University, the Community College of Rhode Island, the Dominican House of Studies, Johnson & Wales University, Providence College, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, Salve Regina University, University of Rhode Island, and Wheaton College.
