Free academic resources

Many academic publishers are making articles, pre-prints and ebooks available for free for the duration of the Covid-19 global emergency. We're adding as many of these as possible to Library Search, the catalogue and the new Library beta search. Where textbooks used in AUT courses are now available electronically, AUT Library is working quickly to make them available via  Course Resources.
