Resources Available During COVID-19 Closure

The UMN Libraries may be closed due to COVID-19, but we are here to help with your research online!

There are also many freely available online resources (full list here)

Welcome to the University of Minnesota Libraries

Do you have your UMN Email (also called Internet ID or x.500)?

Initiating or claiming your account  will give you access to thousands of online journals, magazines, newspapers and ebooks at the University of Minnesota Libraries. Your teacher may need to provide information to complete this step. Ask them. 

Setting up DUO

You also need to set up Duo Authentication to get access to things like your UMN email and to use many of the research tools on the U Library website. The IT Technology online help can answer questions on this. 

Tip: If you are unable to initiate your account you can find scholarly articles with Academic Search Premier, find background information on your topic with Encyclopedia Britannica Academic Edition and find Pro/Con on current issues with Points of View Reference Center.
