Please send any questions or comments you may have; my contact information is to the right.  Contact the library if you are a BU student or faculty member who needs the RefWorks group code.

If you are asked for a Group Code to access RefWorks off campus, call the library and we will tell you: (204) 727-9646.  You can also email me (contact info at the right).

Accessing Databases & ebooks from Home

If you are a student or faculty member at Brandon University, you can access resources from off campus.  Click what you need, and you'll see a white screen asking you to log in.  Once you log in, it should link to the resource you clicked.

To log in, you will need your Brandon University username and password - the same username and password you use to log into the Brandon University network when you're on campus. If you have not claimed your username and password or you are having trouble logging in with those, you should contact the Brandon University Help Desk (Phone 571-8500 Monday -Friday 8:30AM to 4:30PM).  You can also claim the id yourself.
