Corona/Covid-19: Generella resurser

Tillfällig guide med resurser öppnade pga Corona-krisen

Många förlag och plattformar öppnar upp delar eller hela sina samlingar för att stötta studenter och forskare under Corona-krisen.

Nedan hittar ni en lista över dessa resurser. Listan kommer att uppdateras kontinuerligt vilket innebär att den kan komma att ändras genom att resurser läggs till och tas bort.

Resurserna är INTE sökbara i LibSearch och vi kan inte heller garantera access men hoppas ändå att detta ska kunna vara till hjälp.

Generella resurser

Annual Reviews

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 13th we will temporarily remove access control to our content until April 30th.

Bentham Science

Webinars on academic training
With the closure of schools and the cancellation of large social gatherings due to COVID-19, we will be sharing our tips and tricks to limit the disruption of education. Presented by Dr. Gareth Dyke who has been working and teaching from home for the last 5 years, we will discuss some of the best ways to develop clear, simple and easily defined teaching methods. We will also talk about how to ‘time manage’ to become more effective working remotely. Essential distance learning skills for all working academics, irrespective of career stage. Learn to develop clear strategies and questions that will lead to highly engaging teaching during this time and show you how to get your work done while managing competing demands on your time. 


Ebsco

Webinars on Remote Learning 
Ebsco will put together a series of webinars that will provide tips and serve as a forum for discussion as we navigate these new times together. Join us around the clock, two days a week, three times a day, for a new topic starting March 24.

 


​Gale Cengage: COVID-19 Customer Support Web Page

We have created an online toolkit where librarians and educators can find and optimize their existing resources, access additional resources supporting health research and content for teaching, professional development resources to help transition to virtual learning, and more. You can preview the site now but additional resources will be added before deployment Monday and throughout next week.


Internet Archive

The Internet Archive will suspend waitlists for the 1.4 million (and growing) books in our lending library by creating a National Emergency Library to serve the nation’s displaced learners. This suspension will run through June 30, 2020, or the end of the US national emergency, whichever is later. https://archive.org/details/nationalemergencylibrary


Johns Hopkins University Press

Jstor

Jstor resources during Covid-19

For participating academic institutions that currently license some, but not all, JSTOR Archive and Primary Source collections, we will turn on access to all unlicensed collections at no cost.
We are working with publishers to make more than 20,000 books available at no charge for JSTOR-participating academic institutions and secondary schools that do not participate in our books program. The number of books available through this effort is growing daily as more publishers opt in.

Project Muse

Free resources on Muse during Covid-19

Content that is freely available on the Project MUSE platform during the COVID-19 crisis will display a distinctive "Free" icon, different from the "OA" icon used for fully open access content on MUSE, or the familiar green checkmark that users associate with content held by their library. MUSE search results, by default, include any content to which a user has access, so will offer the researcher any relevant free, OA, or entitled articles and books. There are over 2000 open access books and a small number of fully OA journals on the MUSE platform.
