Temporary expanded resource access
Due to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak, many of the Library’s publishers and vendors have taken steps to support students and academics by providing freely accessible content for a limited period of time. The Library would like to share this information with the Curtin community to help you find and use material for your studies and research during this difficult time.
We have developed a list of resources that can be temporarily accessed for free, and we aim to keep it as current as possible by making additions as soon as we are informed by our publishers.
Please note that staff should continue to use Reading Lists to provide access to unit readings. The below listed resources can be added to Reading Lists, but we would like to emphasise that access to these is only temporary and at the publishers’ discretion, and will cease by the dates indicated.
Staff are also encouraged to familiarise themselves with the Library’s guidelines on Copyright and Remote Learning During the COVID-19 Outbreak.
Please contact Library Help if you require any assistance or clarification.
