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 will be using this page to collate a list of resources that can be freely accessed, and we aim to keep it as current as possible by making additions as soon as we are informed by our publishers.
Please contact Library Help if you require any assistance or clarification.
