Additional Temporary Resources for Covid-19 Period

The following resources have been made freely available by publishers, in addition to our subscribed content, for students and staff to use during the period when university libraries are closed due to COVID-19. More resources are becoming available and will be added to the list as we get them. Many will be withdrawn by publishers in due course, but we hope this access will help through this difficult period.
