AMS is providing instructors with complimentary electronic “reserve” copies of textbooks for cases in which students do not have access to their print copies (use the “request desk copy” link on the specific textbook page).

Numerous leading publishers (e.g., Pearson, Macmillan, McGraw-Hill, Elsevier) are working with VitalSource to grant free access to course e-textbooks through May 25, 2020. To access these e-textbooks, students need to log into the VitalSource Bookshelf app using their school email address. Limitation is 7 free books to sign out, so students may want to use other sources as well. There they can find and view course materials from participating publishers via VitalSource’s Explore capabilities within Bookshelf.
Over 10,000 books and 150 journals from over 10 publishers are freely available. Access will continue until May 31, 2020 or June 1, 2020 depending on the publisher.

ProQuest Ebook Central customers impacted by COVID-19 can get unlimited access to all owned titles from over 50 publishers through mid-June. This means that all licenses – including single-user and three-user models – will automatically convert to unlimited access during that period, helping librarians bridge the gap for their patrons in this rapidly changing environment. The unlimited access also applies to additional titles purchased through mid-June. No action is required by librarians to switch on unlimited access – this will be done automatically, and the transition will be seamless for users.
