Come check out our displays and informational items related to eating disorders on the 1st FL of the library (Café side).
First, we have a display table including books about all types and aspects of eating disorders and body image. Feel free to borrow any of these books if they interest you or might be of help to someone you know. There are also handouts and brochures that can assist with getting help for yourself or for someone you know, such as “What Should I Say? Tips for Talking to a Friend Struggling with an Eating Disorder” and “What NOT To Say to Someone in Recovery.” If you know someone who may need help, take a “Let’s Talk About It” card and start the conversation; both Counseling Services and Health Services can assist students who may have an eating problem or friends of those who have an eating disorder.
Next to the display table is a large board with a collage of various statistics, quotes, infographics, images, etc. on eating disorders. Take a button to show your support!
Take an online screening for eating disorders at the National Eating Disorders website. If you suspect that you or someone you know may be struggling with an eating problem, please call or go to Health Services, Miley Hall (Garden Level), x2904 or Counseling Services, Miley Hall (Garden Level), x2919.
Displays by Gretchen Sotomayor, Special Programs and Instruction Librarian
“Libros en Español” (1st FL)
We have many new titles in fiction and non-fiction (and more on the way) in Spanish, on display by the McKillop Café.
Display by Nancy Barta-Norton, Acquisitions Librarian, with recommendations from Esther María Alarcón Arana, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in Modern Languages.
Archives Display: “Spatial Relations” (3rd FL)
“Spatial Relations” is a mini exhibit of cartographic materials from Archives and Special Collections. It demonstrates a variety of representations of geographic space on paper and meditates on the role of map-making in empire, environment, and international relations. It also explores maps as covetable objects, highlighting the problems of map prints being removed from antiquarian books. The display is on the third floor of the library, between the stairs and the elevator, and will be available for viewing all semester during library hours.

Library hours will remain the same as last fall, which are as follows:
Safety Guidelines McKillop Library is open to current Salve students, faculty and staff via Salve ID swipe.Library staff has instituted distancing measures in the library’s study spaces to keep the Salve community safe. Masks are required, properly worn, throughout the building at all times.
Hand sanitizing stations and cleaning wipes and supplies will be available. Library staff will also clean surfaces hourly. Books/DVDs will be quarantined for three (3) days upon return (please allow up to 3 days for returned items to be removed from your library account).
New Library Staff
Welcome Lisa Kenyon, Education & Instruction librarian and Erin Perfect, Research & Instruction librarian. We’re very excited to have them here and know that they will receive a warm Salve welcome!
Food & Drink McKillop Café is open and food may be consumed on the café side of the first floor only. Masks are still required on that floor, though people can remove them while actively eating. Food is not permitted anywhere else in the library, but beverages can be consumed throughout– we ask that the Salve community drink beverages through a straw under their mask or briefly remove their mask to sip, and then put it back on.
The research & information desk will not be regularly staffed but librarians are available for research help via chat, phone, email, virtual conference and in-person walk-in at the Circulation desk.
McKillop Library will continue to offer physical reserves while in-person classes remain in session, and will offer online reserves through the fall and spring semesters.
Book a Study Room
You can book one of three technology-equipped study rooms online at https://salve.libcal.com/reserve/studyrooms. Please note maximum capacity for each room based on social distancing guidelines. Rooms can be booked up to four days in advance.
Adhere to capacity limits for study rooms.
Masks and social distancing are required in study rooms, even if alone.
No food in study rooms (beverages only).
Please clean surfaces before and after using the rooms (wipes are supplied on each floor).
Anyone found repeatedly violating these rules may be restricted from reserving study rooms.
Resources for Remote Students/Faculty For local Salve community members teaching or learning remotely, we are offering curbside delivery of requested items. Simply request your item(s) through our catalog. You will receive an email notification when your item(s) are ready for pickup (1-2 business days for Salve items, 2-3 business days for HELIN items, 3-7 day average for Interlibrary Loan books). Come to the library at your convenience and when you arrive, please call the front desk at 401-341-2294, let us know whether you are at the front or back entrance and we will deliver your items to you.
If you are learning or teaching remotely and unable to get to campus, we will mail your items to you, upon request.Please note: as a cost-saving measure, we use USPS Media Mail for all mailed items. This service takes up to 8 business days for delivery, and often longer due to current circumstances, so please keep important assignment deadlines in mind when requesting to receive items by mail. Books requested from other HELIN libraries will take an extra few days to be delivered, so this should be factored into your plans for requesting to receive items by mail. Items mailed from McKillop Library do not include pre-paid postage for return.
It remains library policy that books requested via interlibrary loan will NOT be mailed, as the lending libraries are not part of our consortium and have different policies.
The library offers many options for remote research such as databases for articles in virtually any subject area and access to thousands of ebooks and electronic newspapers. Visit our database page for links, descriptions and access.
