If you are outside of Brown's campus, you can access many of the documents via the University Library. See this page for details. I think the easiest way is to use this bookmarklet: EZProxy. Just drag it to your bookmarks bar. It transforms the url of an exclusive resource, such as an article page in the ACM Digital Library, into one that can be accessed via the Library proxy once you authenticate!
