Library Delivery Changes

Posted by: on April 28, 2015   |Comments (0)|Announcements

Due to changes in the statewide library delivery system, all library deliveries will be suspended beginning May 1.  This means that patrons will be unable to request any materials from other Helin libraries until library delivery is restored.

PC patrons do still have full access to all of our electronic databases URL: http://providence.libguides.com/Databases_A_Z, as well as our extensive eBook collections accessible via EBL, and the Helin catalog

Access to Helin libraries is not changing, PC patrons are still able to go to other Helin libraries to pick up materials, but they will not be able to request those items be sent to Phillips Memorial Library though delivery.

We are truly sorry for the inconvenience.  If you have any questions about access, please call (401) 865-1993, text (401) 484-7004, email ask-a-librarian@lists.providence.edu or post a question on our online webform providence.edu/library.

2nd Annual Research Prize

Posted by: on April 25, 2015   |Comments (0)|Announcements

Here at the library, we love research.

keep-calm-and-love-research-studies

It’s kind of our thing

But it’s also a thing that is not only important for us, but also the students of PC

Library-Day-One

So we want to know more about the research undergrads are doing

AND

We at the library, and the good folks at the Center for Engaged Learning want to reward you for your hard work!

4639864704_success_baby_kid_google_images_answer_1_xlarge

All we need from you is:

  1. 1. A research paper (you were probably going to write one anyway–right?)
  2. 2. An annotated bibliography (again, you were probably already doing one–now just add annotations)
  3. 3. A 5-7 page essay describing your research process (everybody loves to talk about how smart they are, here’s your chance!)

That’s it!

Send that all to Andria Tieman: atieman@providence.edu by May 15th to enter, and you could be well on your way to being one of the recipients of the Phillips Memorial Library Undergraduate Craft of Research Prize!  In addition to a cash prize, winning papers will be publisher in PC’s Digital Commons right along with the works of PC’s scholars.

Everything you need to know–including research tips, citation help, how to write an annotated bibliography, etc., is located here: http://providence.libguides.com/research_prize
