LIBRARY RESOURCES

If you need help with online access to course materials such as ebooks, journal articles, or streaming videos, please contact your librarian or Cheryl Cuillier in Content & Collections. A growing number of publishers and vendors are providing free access for courses. Anyone in the world can now get free access to more than 1.4 million ebooks in a National Emergency Library from the Internet Archive. Users can now borrow ebooks from the National Emergency Library without joining a waitlist, ensuring that students have access to assigned readings and library materials that the Internet Archive has digitized. This waitlist suspension will run through June 30, 2020, or the end of the U.S. national emergency, whichever is later. Learn more about the National Emergency Library and see FAQ.
