We are aware that our students may no longer have access to their textbooks due to the impact of COVID-19. There are several ways that the University Libraries can help.
Course Reserves provide online access to the Libraries' material -- linking to Libraries' subscription resources, finding e-books where available, and much more.
Many publishers and vendors are providing limited time free access or trials to faculty and students affected by COVID-19. These are in addition to the content that the University Libraries already licenses for the TAMU community. As we hear of these offers, we will post them.
You can put together readings, course packs, or post from our streaming media collection by embedding links into your course. Embedding links correctly is important for remote access, accessibility, and honoring the Libraries' licensing agreements.
