Access to Online Resources during COVID-19 Crisis


Getting Started

Enhanced Access to Resources in Theology

During this COVID-19 crisis, a number of publishers and digital libraries have provided temporary access to e-books and other online resources.  The following sources are especially noteworthy for research in theology:

HathiTrust Digital Library

This site provides full-text access to over 600,000 in-copyright volumes in the BC Libraries' print collections, as well as to over 7 million volumes in the public domain.  If you find a resource on the libraries' website that is only available in print, check out this site to see if you can access the e-version there.  For information on this offering and how to access the content, please see HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access.  

Update: please note that these full-text books are now available through the BC Libraries' website.  If you have any questions about locating them, please view our FAQs or ask a member of the TML staff.


BC Libraries' Guide on Enhanced Access for Covid-19 Emergency

This guide provides an overview on all the sources being temporarily offered at this time, including from publishers.  Note that the Project Muse platform is offering access to content from a number of publishers in theology.  Bloomsbury, Cambridge, and Oxford are also among the publishers providing access to content on their own platforms.  


BC Libraries' E-books and Other Electronic Resources

Don't forget to look for e-books in the BC Libraries' collection, available through the libraries' website!  To get tips on how to locate e-books, check out this video produced by staff at the O'Neill library.
