R2 Digital Library Trial

R2 Digital Library

The Brown University Library is currently providing trial access to the R2 Digital Library, a database of medical, public health, and biology ebooks. Features of R2 Digital include:

  • Ebooks from more than 50 major publishers such as AAMC, ACOG, AAP, Springer, Jones & Bartlett, and Cambridge
  • Saved searches, images, references, and bookmarks using a customized MyR2 account.
  • Browse by category, discipline or title
  • Search content across the entire platform, finding information on a topic in just two clicks.

We particularly encourage BioMed and School of Public Health faculty, students, and residents to explore this resource. See the R2 Digital Library user guide for useful tips. The trial will run through April 15. Please send your questions or feedback to: Erika Sevetson, Head of Health and Science Information Services.
