Research Guides

Expanded (Temporary) Access to Publisher’s E-Resources


Overview of Resources
In light of the pandemic situation and subsequent move to online classes, publishers have expanded the breadth of available electronic resources in an effort to support educators and their students. This guide provides access to these resources all in one place.

Under the "Expanded Resources" tab, you will find an extensive selection of materials that are temporarily electronically available. They are organized into three subsections: Materials available through open access; materials available for free after a sign-up process; and materials that are accessible with assistance from a UML liaison librarian. You will also find several publishers providing students with expanded online access to textbooks.
