Remote access

Circumstances vary widely between institutions, but almost everyone can agree, it’s important to stay agile and strategic. In listening to librarians, we’ve heard that the number one priority is still remote access. And we have resources in place to help:

Online instruction

The next area of focus is helping schools shift to online instruction, an area where libraries can play a critical role.

With students not able to ask professors questions in a real-time classroom experience, ScienceDirect Topics provides free, online access to authoritative definitions and subject overviews, helping to bridge knowledge gaps.


Collection assessment

You may have noticed a shift in content that is being access by your users. If so, we can provide you with a deep dive, highlighting what’s being used more and areas that may be less relevant.
