During the COVID-19 public health crisis, several platforms, publishers, and licensors are allowing for expanded access to their content. This guide was designed to help students and faculty working from home take advantage of these limited-time opportunities. Please keep in mind that many platforms will still require you to log in via institution to access their content. Look for Tulane University when prompted, and sign in using your TU username (or email) and password.
This LibGuide is a work in progress and will be continuously updated. Please forward any information you may receive about additional offers to the owner of this page, Will Judson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Emerald Publishing is offering free access to a number of viral epidemiology research articles. Click here for a link to the search page.

Guilford's periodicals will be open access through 9/30. This is their announcement:
In March, Guilford opened access and made all our journal content free, enabling library patrons to access our content from any location.
We have decided that we will extend the free access to all our journal content through September 30.
Guilford is committed to giving libraries support for providing remote access.
- Our journals website supports remote access for libraries with Proxy IP.
- We are set up to provide Shibboleth access for members of many Shibboleth federations.
- Our website supports Universal CASA-based access.
- We provide Guilford Journals Mobile whereby all journal content can be accessed on patrons’ mobile devices. Once a device is associated with an institution, it is paired automatically, providing patrons with 24/7 access from any location.
Guilford Journals is not increasing subscription prices for 2021 in response to the ongoing financial challenges libraries are facing.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has made articles related to the current public health crisis on their IEEE Xplore platform freely accessible.
Please remember that Tulane has a subscription to the entire IEEE Xplore Digital Library -- click here to access it via OpenAthens.
