The library may be closed, but lots of publications are – or are being made – available online. Professor Däwes has put together a list of some libraries, publishers, and databases that have provided open access to their resources.
This is an immensely useful link: it’s an online library for which you simply need to create a free account (with your e-mail address and password), and you’ll have access to a 7-digit number of books and other materials from American libraries.
CUP has opened a lot of its materials, including Cambridge Companions and Cambridge Histories. Very useful!
Here you find other open acccess sources from Cambridge UP.
This is a list of open access journals; you can also search the entire directory for specific articles (I just found 88 hits for „William Faulkner“ alone).
- Project Muse
is offering free access to some resources for the next 30 days (keep a look out for the little ‚free‘ icon)
This is a list compiled by the University of Leiden that collects links to some of the publishers (including, for instance, Ohio State UP and deGruyter).
Please also make use of the MLA International Bibliography and JSTOR (available via VPN from our university library), and please note that the EUF library has just now purchased a license for the Scholars E-Library (UTB), Peter Lang eBooks, and the most recent publications in the field of literature from transcript publishers. If you are unsure how to access these resources, the ZHB has put together a course on Moodle, where you can get more info & access guidelines:
Also: this list is by no means exhaustive – if you have other links you think I should add, feel free to tell me in the comments, and I will do so!
