Some publishers are offering expanded access to library resources for a limited time to support distance education during the Covid 19 crisis. Below is a list of special offers that could benefit IWS students during the June 2020 online session.

JSTOR Free Access

JSTOR is a database that provides access to more than 12 million academic journal articles, books, and primary sources in 75 disciplines. JSTOR allows individuals to register for a limited free access account. Normally, this enables users to read up to 6 articles every 30 days online for free. From now through June 30, 2020, JSTOR is increasing the number of articles individual users can read online for free from 6 to 100.

Internet Archive National Emergency Library

Internet Archive National Emergency Library is a collection of books that supports emergency remote teaching, research activities, independent scholarship, and intellectual stimulation while universities, schools, training centers, and libraries are closed. You can gain access by creating an account at their signup page.

Users will have access to a book for two weeks, and will need to check it out again to continue access. Available through June 30, 2020.

Expanded access to IWS EBSCO eBooks

Updated May 11, 2020. From now through June 30, 2020, several publishers of eBooks licensed to IWS for 1 user at a time are offering access for unlimited users at the same time. A list of the eBook titles included is attached. The list includes several IWS course textbooks. Ebooks can be accessed through the Ebooks on EBSCO site by logging in with your Canvas/Populi UserID and Password.
