Temporary Publisher Access Changes due to COVID-19
Many publishers are offering free or expanded access to their content, including e-books and e-journals, during the COVID-19 crisis. This site links to various publishers and the content they are making temporarily available.
Temporary Access to Redshelf (online textbooks)
Redshelf, a platform for delivering textbooks online, has enabled access to much of its content. Use the link to access the site and search for a textbook title. Including the author of the textbook will help narrow the search. Multiple editions may be available so search for your assigned edition. Students will need to create a free account to get access to these textbooks.
Please contact the library for help if needed.
