Visitor Information

Access to the John Carter Brown Library is limited to our research fellows and researchers with an appointment to use materials in our reading room. 

To schedule a research appointment, please complete the JCB Library Visitors form. All researchers must provide an attestation of vaccination against COVID-19. You will receive an email from the Brown Visitors office requesting this information. Please allow up to three days to process this form. Members of the Brown community who have already provided vaccination information are exempt from this requirement.

Once we receive confirmation that you have submitted your vaccination information, we can help you schedule a research shift.
