Library Resources and Services for Faculty

Borrowing Materials

Loan periods and renewals: Faculty are granted one-year loan periods for most materials. Most renewals can be completed online.

Requesting Materials

Borrowing Materials from Other Libraries. While Brown has many strong collections there are areas where we take advantage of partnerships with other libraries. Brown's easyBorrow service facilitates interlibrary loan requests for books through WorldCat, while ILLiad is available for journal article requests.

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.
