E-Books and Other Available Resources
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak many publishers and vendors are making some or all of their content freely available. This guide lists some of these offers; it does not include material that is normally available through regular Harvard Library subscriptions. Please note that availability now will not guarantee availability in the future, and that these free items won't necessarily be found in HOLLIS. As always, if there's something you think the library should own, please fill out a purchase request form.
And if you need help finding something, email me directly, or Ask a Librarian!
This guide highlights the major offers that we're aware of as of March 25, 2020. Please see this list designed for librarians for a more comprehensive list of offers. Also, the Harvard-based Open Access Tracking Project has an extensive, tagged library of information on OA. Offers related to the pandemic are tagged oa.humanitarian; follow that feed here.
