The Library can help you find materials from our own Library and from other libraries. 

Off-Campus Access

Most of Brown's electronic resources are accessible from off campus. More information is available on our main website.

To access most resources from off-campus: start at the library website then navigate to the resource you need. You'll be presented with the Brown University login that will allow you access.  If you do not have access, try downloading and using the VPN. Please note that you may need to clear your cache after downloading the VPN to have it work.
