We at Annual Reviews have been thinking about how to help the many students, faculty and researchers that are working and studying remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. To assist them, on Monday, March 16th we will temporarily remove access control to our content.
I’m making our market research library FREE to your school for the remainder of your semester. This is an offer with absolutely no strings attached. We just want to provide you and your students with a free, reliable market research resource during these uncertain times. Just email us and we’ll get you set up with free access for you and your students.
Cambridge University Press has updated its free access offering to university libraries and their associated students and faculty – the collection now features our HTML textbooks, as well as Cambridge Histories, Cambridge Companions, and Cambridge Elements – all told over 2,000 ebooks. This institutional free access offer will be available until June 29, 2020.
Please note that if your institution had previously set up access to our free reference collection, then your access should have automatically been updated to include HTML textbooks. Your patrons will need to go through your library’s normal authentication process to be able to use the included materials.
If you have users who can't connect to CIAO remotely through their regular library credentials, let us know. We can assign you a username and password that you can share with all your students or patrons, giving them remote access from their homes.

The National Emergency Library is a collection of books that supports emergency remote teaching, research activities, independent scholarship, and intellectual stimulation while universities, schools, training centers, and libraries are closed.
We at NewspaperArchive.com would like to extend our hand in these trying times. We understand many institutions are closing their doors to the public for health and preventative reasons. We would love to help by offering your staff & patrons free access to our 300 million page newspaper collection from the comfort of their own homes. This is a unique feature about our database - remote access to our site using a referring URL. We would also like to offer free remote access to all other libraries who are not currently a part of our community. If you happen to know of any other libraries or institutions that could benefit from our services during these solemn times, we would be happy to extend free access to them during this global pandemic.
In order to obtain remote access, we will need either a referring URL, or an EZProxy IP address. If you are interested in setting this up, please let us know by responding to this email. Micaela Coleman

Coronavirus-Impacted Libraries get Unlimited Access to Ebook Central Holdings. Starting next week, ProQuest Ebook Central customers impacted by COVID-19 will get unlimited access to all owned titles from these publishers through mid-June. This means that all licenses – including single-user and three-user models – will automatically convert to unlimited access during that period, helping librarians bridge the gap for their patrons in this rapidly changing environment. The unlimited access also applies to additional titles purchased through mid-June. No action is required by librarians to switch on unlimited access – this will be done automatically, and the transition will be seamless for users. Participating Publishers
