Requesting Materials

While Brown has many strong collections there are areas where we take advantage of partnerships with other libraries. Some special privileges for faculty include:

  • E-delivery of journal articles from Brown's print and other collections to your desktop within 48 hours [requested through ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan)]
  • Delivery of library books to your department mail room or administrative office via Campus Mail, Monday through Friday, during regular office hours.
  • Deputy borrowing: Designate someone to pick up materials on your behalf.
