Access to a new eresource has been added on the Databases A-Z list on the Library Web. The United Nations Digital Library (UNDL) is now a freely accessible online resource.
Current and historical: provides a single access point to UN information. Allows for exploration of documents and publications, voting data, maps, speeches, images and sounds, and more. Additional collections of digital materials will be added as they are created or are made available by UN departments, offices, and agencies. Covers most UN bodies such as the General Assembly, the International Court of Justice, the Human Rights bodies, and many more. [This resource is publicly available.]
4/26/2017:LexisNexis is currently unavailable from off-campus. On-campus, you need to remove the phrase revproxy.brown.edu from your URL after you login to be able to search effectively in LexisNexis. The publisher and CIS have been notified and a notice will be posted here when the service is back up and working properly.
We apologize for the inconvenience. An alternate resource to use is HEINOnline.
R2 Digital Library
The Brown University Library is currently providing trial access to the R2 Digital Library. R2 Digital is a database of medical, public health, and biology, ebooks from major publishers such as AAP, APHA, AAMC, Jones and Bartlett, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Springer, and many more. Features of the R2 Digital Library include:
- Saved searches, images, references and bookmarks, and A-Z drug and topic indexes using a customized MyR2 account
- Browse by category, discipline or title
- Search content across the entire platform, finding information on a topic in just two clicks.
We particularly encourage BioMed and School of Public Health faculty, students, and residents to explore this resource. See the R2 Digital Library user guide for useful tips. The trial will run through April 15. Please send your questions or feedback to Erika Sevetson, Head of Health and Science Information Services.
If you use the VPN to access Library eresources, you may be affected by this change. We recommend that you just click on a database or ejournal link and authenticate via EZProxy instead, but if you want to use VPN, please check out the CIS website below.
