The Moses Brown Library Is Still Open!

Moses Brown’s librarians miss seeing everyone’s smiling face on campus but are still here to help students, faculty and staff. They are here for you! Although this is a difficult time there is a great deal they can still do remotely. Since information is distributed so widely these days, the Library’s resources and skills like researching, critical thinking and discernment have never been more important.

A few links and reminders of where things are:

MB Library website:

These are the three schoolhouse library portals:

Research & Citation Guide:
MB’s comprehensive guide to the upper school research process, framing your projects and citation help.

A-Z Databases:
A complete listing of all databases for all divisions.

Community Guides:
These are our recent guides, including our updated Covid-19 guide, Public Library Resources and Distance Learning Resources.

Our library databases are accessible from home; you simply need your MB email credentials to gain access, but if you have any issues, just message your librarian for help. There is also a phenomenal wealth of free and extended resources that have cropped up, most good for the next few months, and you will find many of those in the Library’s Distance Learning sections (but please read carefully – some require you to create a separate account for the free access, and some may require a library card). There is a Public Library section in the MB guides as well so if you don’t have one or it expired, you can get that fixed quickly from home and get right back into eBooks, audiobooks and other available resources!

Please also keep an eye out for your invite to the extended New York Times! MB’s Academic On-site License has been extended to cover remote usage for our community and together with the Technology Department, the Library is able to let you read through the paper at home for the next few months! Invites went out via email on April 13.

Confused? If you bookmark the Library’s homepage, you can easily find your way to all the rest, no worries.

For specific questions, please reach out to your division’s librarian – Jason Bloom (upper school:, Anne Krive (middle school: and Laura Gladding (lower school:
