The library's new search service does not replace the library's existing services such as Josiah (library catalog) or database and ejournal lists. What distinguishes the new service is the ability to search across previously separate systems from a single search box and get back fast and relevant results. See:

Josiah is the library's online catalog. Josiah contains records for books, journal titles, microforms and other formats. It does NOT contain articles; instead use databases to locate articles.

InRhode is the combined catalog of the HELIN Consortium (RI academic libraries) and Josiah. Should Josiah be down,information about Brown holdings can be found in the the InRhode catalog. Request items from InRhode directly from a Josiah results screen when you see this icon - inrhode button

College Hill Libraries (CHiL)
Brown University & Rhode Island School of Design

Center for Digital Scholarship. Search the CDS catalog to discover the Library's digitized collections.

WorldCat. With over 69 million records WorldCat is the world's largest bibliographic database. Use the find it button or "Request this item" link to pass a search to the Library's new easyBorrow service.

Borrow Direct allows you to place online requests for materials that are not available at Brown. You need your 14-digit library barcode to place requests. These services are generally faster than Interlibrary Loan but materials are not renewable. The Library's new easyBorrow system will search Borrow Direct as well as InRhode on your behalf and place a request with the most appropriate service.

Ocean State Libraries (formerly CLAN) provides access to materials in all of the public libraries in Rhode Island. Brown students can obtain an OSL card by presenting a student ID.
