Many publishers are offering temporary free or extended access to e-books and other e-resources to help those institutions who are transitioning to distance learning during the Covid-19 pandemic. The library is putting together a list of e-resources.
In addition, some publishers offers help by giving access to individual titles to those institutions who contact them with information about their needs. Please contact email@example.com if there is any resource that might help you, and we will investigate the possibilities for access.
