Connecting With Your Library

We invite all students, faculty, staff, alumni and our community members to connect with the University Library and discover our changing public programs, exhibits, and collections of books and other resources.  In partnership with our Writer-in-Residence, Professor Adam Braver, you can look forward to an exciting variety of events featuring notable authors and illustrators.  Displays of rare and unique materials (both on-site and virtual) can be annually enjoyed, as well – celebrating anniversaries of notable American fiction and non-fiction.  Each year our University Archives will keep you connected to the institution through exhibits from its collections of historic documents, photographs, and videos.  Please visit our site, Connecting With Your Library!

Meet our contributors:

Abigail DeVeuve

Abby is a senior from Hanson, Massachusetts, majoring in English Literature and minoring in Biology. She loves to surround herself with everything bookish, so working for the library just makes sense. She also works as a Writing Tutor in the library, so much of her time is spent there. Abby is also an Assistant Editor for Mount Hope, RWU's literary magazine, and hopes to work in publishing when she graduates. When she's not in the library, she can be found exploring the local area and enjoying RI's beautiful scenery -- local Blithewold Mansion is her favorite zen escape from the campus buzz. 


Brittany Parziale

Brittany is a junior from Middlebrow, Massachusetts, double majoring in Legal Studies and Creative Writing, with a minor in Political Science. Her passion for writing and law has offered her unique opportunities at RWU, such as being president of Phi Alpha Delta, a contributor to the Hawks' Herald, and a radio DJ on WQRI. After graduating from RWU, Brittany plans on attending law school, as well as working toward becoming a published author. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends.



Alexis den Boggende

Alexis is a junior from North Andover, Massachusetts, majoring in Creative Writing and minoring in Global Communications.
