Temporary Free Access To Databases During COVID-19

Many database vendors have offered temporary free access to their databases to help instructors teach online during the COVID-19 pandemic. I have set up institutional access to all the ones I'm aware of and will update the list when I discover new ones. If you know of any other free access databases, please contact Lily Kun.

Because these databases are temporary, I have limited ability to change how the permanent links work. There's an easy solution to fix how the permanent links work on these temporary databases so that you and your students can have direct access to the article, ebook, or video that you want.

  1. Find the permanent link. Look for an icon that looks like a figure 8 (see How do I find permanent links for examples)
  2. Add the SPSCC proxy prefix link in front of the link. The proxy link will redirect users to the SPSCC login page. Once the user has logged into the SPSCC network, all the permanent links from these temporary databases should work. SPSCC proxy prefix link:

For example, if the permanent link from the database is:

Then your new permanent link with the SPSCC proxy prefix link should look like this:
