Free or Expanded Online Resources: Home

Resources available on a temporary basis offered by vendors.


In addition to the resources already offered by SU Libraries, these resources are being offered either for free of at a reduced rate by organizations and publishers on a temporary basis as we work through the rapid transition to online instruction.

Please note that because access is temporary, these resources will not appear in the Libraries' main search box (Summon).

HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service

Syracuse University faculty, staff, and students now have temporary expanded online access to 52% of the Libraries' print collections through the University's membership to the HathiTrust. This access is possible as long as the current public health crisis keeps our physical facilities closed.
