More than 30 leading STM publishers have committed to making all of their COVID-19 and coronavirus-related publications immediately accessible. At Brill we have opened up books and articles on topics such as public health, distance learning, crisis research. If any new related content is published with us, it will be added to this collection.
We are also pleased to share that our colleagues at Epigeum, part of Oxford University Press, have made their courses on Teaching Online and Blended Learning freely available until the end of May in order to help those tackling distance learning for the first time. Find out more information about these courses on the Epigeum website.
And finally, please be aware that OUP has a comprehensive hub of the latest COVID-19 research, freely available for the duration of the outbreak, in order to support researchers, medics, and public health professionals in dealing with the crisis.
“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.”
As the crisis deepens, The Chronicle is providing free access to our breaking-news updates.
We invite you to explore our complete coverage of the coronavirus, including other tools and resources you might find useful:
Films On Demand offers cloud hosting which allows you to upload up to 10 programs from other producers for which you own the digital rights to our Films On Demand platform. This allows you to stream the video, add it to a playlist or create segments, embed it in an LMS and share it out to students just like you can with any of the other title on our platform. Our tech support department is available to help with any questions you may have. If you need additional storage space we have cloud hosting packages available.

Coronavirus-Impacted Libraries get Unlimited Access to Ebook Central Holdings. 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. List of participating publishers here (pdf).
