Research Help During Library Closure

Although the libraries are currently closed due to the COVID-19 emergency, I am still available to help you with your research needs and other library questions. Please see my contact information in the box on this page; send me an email to ask a question or to set up a Zoom consultation.

HathiTrust Temporary Ebooks

During the COVID-19 crisis, the Brown community has temporary access to about 40% of our print books through digitized versions in HathiTrust. If a print book is checked out or you are unable to come to campus to borrow it, it's worth checking HathiTrust.

There is no way to limit your Josiah search only to HathiTrust books, but you can search HathiTrust separately (see below).
