Library and Course Material Expansion
Many vendors have arranged for expanded access to their digital resources to allow students to successfully complete courses online. Here are some of the new opportunities we know of. If you need a specific resource not yet available to you online, please contact a librarian for assistance. We may be able to scan a print edition or negotiate extended online access with a vendor.Our own DigitalCommons contains many resources freely available, from videos of on-campus events to faculty research and publications.
The Electronic Library of Minnesota gives Minnesota residents access to magazine, journal, newspaper and encyclopedia articles, media, including images, videos, and audio files, and other information resources. ELM now has additional Minitex Temporary Access Databases that includes extended use of trial resources, including many for K-12 as well as adults.
Anyone anywhere can now access a growing online collection of contemporary open access eBooks from the Library of Congress website.
Journals, preprints, conference proceedings and dissertations provide comprehensive coverage of COVID-19 and other past coronavirus outbreaks, such as MERS and SARS, for context around the current global pandemic.
