Free access to resources during COVID-19
As the situation with Covid-19 continues to develop rapidly, many publishers are making their resources freely and temporarily available, i.e. for the coming weeks, months or for the remainder of the academic year.
The following list will be updated regularly as we find new resources.
EBSCO Information Services offers free access to Academic Search Ultimate . This is a multidisciplinary full-text journal database with more than 9200 journal titles. From Law to Pharmaceutical Sciences and from Psychology to Women’s Studies, these and many more subjects are covered in this database. Academic Search Ultimate is available until 31 July 2020.
APA Publishing is helping to support our customers during this challenging time by making a variety of resources freely available. For students and faculty at colleges and universities that have shut down their campuses and moved classes online, we are allowing instructors to use PsycLearn : Research Methods content with their students at no cost for the remainder of this semester. The eight available modules of PsycLearn : Introduction to Social Psychology are also available. Interested educators should contact their APA Partnership Manager or email.

In order to provide online access to students and researchers working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Guilford Press has opened access and made all their journal content free. You can access all of their content from any location. Free access will be available until at least August 31.
UM has access to Pressreader in the next 3 months. In Pressreader you can find over 5000 newspapers and magazines from all over de the world, with an archive of 90 days back in time.
Since EzProxy does not work directly with the PressReader App (and only the website), the users should connect via the proxy, register an account on PressReader.com, and then login with their account on the PressReader App.
Once you have an account, not only can you access on multiple devices, but you can also take advantage of personal features such as creating email alerts on topics; bookmarking and creating collections; select preferred publications and auto-deliveries; translate, share, comment, and much more.
