The printed pages are deducted from this balance.  Black and white prints are deducted at $.05 per page and color prints are deducted at $.25 per page. If students exceed this amount, they will be billed.

On-campus users are automatically logged in to the library's databases and online resources. However, if you are off-campus or in the dorms, you must log in with your RIC User ID and RIC Password.  If you have difficulty logging in, please contact kayton@ric.edu
