Giving to the Library: Give to Adams Library

The James P. Adams Library is dedicated to providing students and faculty with the information and services necessary to support instruction and learning at Rhode Island College. Your gifts will help to support this mission.

Donate Online to Support the Library

It's easy to donate online. Visit the Support Rhode Island College page.  In the "Donate To" section, select James P. Adams Library.

The library has several naming opportunities available for donors who wish to make a substantial contribution.  For more information, see Give to RIC - Naming Opportunities, or contact the Library Director.

 

Adopt a Journal

Support the purchase of important journals by making a donation to "adopt" a journal.  Adopted journals will contain a note in the online catalog honoring the donor.  For more information contact Judith Stokes, Serials Librarian, at 456-8165.

Honor a Friend or Family Member

Gifts can be given in honor of, or in memory of, a friend, family member, faculty member, student, or alumnus.  Donations of this type can be used to purchase library materials or other items.  Gifts may be acknowledged with a bookplate or plaque commemorating the honoree.

For gifts that support collections, the Library's digital bookplating program places a permanent link to each bookplate in the online catalog record for titles acquired through the generosity of the Library's donors.
