Library Services During Covid-19 Response


All across the internet, publishers and creators are making content free for users who suddenly find themselves in new and uncertain circumstances due to COVID-19. We are working to compile links to content that we think the Michigan Tech community will find helpful for their classes, lives, and entertainment. This guide will evolve and change over time. Instructors - these links can be embedded into your Canvas page. Please contact us with any questions or suggestions.

Temporary Free Academic Resources

In response to increased remote access research and educational needs, various publishers have granted increased access to subscription or purchase-based materials for a limited time. When possible, the library is compiling these resources into linked Collections in our catalog for easy browsing. Other links point directly to the publisher sites. We appreciate it if you would use the links the library provides as this allows us to collect aggregated data on resource usage and needs.

Resources for Instructors

Numerous publishers and online learning platforms have granted increased access to their materials and resources through the end of the semester in order to ease the transition to online teaching. In several cases, instructors need to set up class wide access. More info via the links below. Please contact the library if you need help navigating the publisher's site or the Center for Teaching and Learning if you need additional assistance with online learning.


Numerous organizations and librarians across the US have been hard at work compiling publisher information over the last several weeks. Many thanks to those that made their work freely available. Much of what you can find on this page has been pulled from the following sources:
