Plough Library has assembled COVID-19: Library Support, a guide that pulls together information about the library's resources and services during the time that CBU's campus is closed.
Use the page to access our brand new Chat service and to find information about accessing resources to use with research assignments. Remember the library has a collection of databases that provide full text journal articles, ebooks, and streaming videos on all subjects.
Of particular note, you should be aware that many subscription/purchase-only vendors are making their online products available for free at this time. Check the Temporary Free Collections page as this list will continue to grow. We are selecting those resources that will be of most use to CBU students and faculty. At present, EBSCO eBooks are all unlimited access, Elsevier ScienceDirect has opened up its textbooks, MIT Press has made the ebooks in its catalog available for online reading (only), and the Annual Reviews publications are entirely available, as are the JoVE Science Education Videos. Be aware that any of these resources may have special requirements for use. If they do, our page will provide access details.
The guide also has pages dedicated to Faculty Support (including a special update on Course Reserves) and Interlibrary Loan during this time.
