Temporary Access to Scholarly Resources

This is a list of newly opened content during the COVID-19 closure period.

In order to support institutions and students moving to remote instruction & learning, many publishers are offering some or all of their e-resources freely for a period of few months. The side menu contains lists of resources that have been made freely available as a response to the research and scholarship barriers created by COVID-19.

The International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC) community has issued a “Statement on the Global COVID-19 Pandemic and Its Impact on Library Services and Resources.” ICOLC is also keeping track of all adjustments that vendors are making to the accessibility of their content due to COVID-19. The public-facing list is available here.

OCLC is also maintaining a growing list of this freely available content at
