Library Support

Library support for checking out books virtually, remote learning and more.

The Brown Science & Engineering Library is providing help and support for your teaching and learning transition to the online environment.

Library Guides

MAE and MechE Library Guide will pass students through our proxy so they can NetBadge in and access our resources: and


Virtual Bookshelf

There is a new resource, VitalSource:

They are providing free access to textbooks through May 25, up to 7 titles per user, if you sign-up using your .edu email.  They have many textbooks from the major publishers. If not there, we are also looking to identify any textbooks that could be purchased electronically if needed, or in extreme cases digitizing a textbook on demand.


Remote Learning Help

The Library also has a page for Student Support for Remote Learning:
