Accessing library databases remotely (non-affiliates)
Current University of Minnesota students, faculty and staff DO have access to most of our online databases and collections from off-campus. Usually visitors are able to access online collections in-person, but our libraries are currently closed to those without UMN U-Cards. Unfortunately, our licenses do not allow us to offer access to most online resources from outside of our physical libraries, so this guide lists scholarly resources you can use for free, from any location, regardless of your University-affiliation. Please note that the landscape for access to library online resources is rapidly changing. We'll continue to add resources here as they become available.
Minnesota access to online resources during COVID-19
Check with your local public library - many libraries, like Hennepin County, Ramsey County, and St. Paul Public Libraries are now offering access to libraries via services like curbside pick-up, computer appointments, and more. Public library card holders can also access most public libraries' online resources from home.
