COVID-19 Response: Home

In response to Covid-19, this guide will offer resources regarding the outbreak, as well as temporarily free resources available for a limited time period.
Many publishers are offering select content for free during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The library has created this guide to help the DMU Community learn more about the esources/services that are temporarily available in addition to the ebooks, journals, or databases already provided by the library. If you know of a resource that should be added to this list, please contact the library. 

We know that many of you are working away from campus due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  Remote access to the library is vital to your research, patient care, and studies.  If you experience any issues connecting to library resources, please let us know immediately.  We may not know of a problem unless you report it.  Once a problem has been identified we will post information here.  

Status: no known issues at this time.


We are working hard to keep materials available during the COVID-19 response period. Please click on the link below for complete instructions on how to check out printed materials.

Non-print materials that are located behind the circulation desk, such as whiteboards, headphones, and anatomical models are not available for checkout during this period.
