Working from home? Find all the resources you may need here

22/05/2020

In this uncertain time, it is more important than ever that researchers and students have options to easily access journals, books, online courses and various products and services from the safety of their home. In response to campus and workplace closures worldwide, publishers are either offering temporarily free access to some of their e-resources or expanding their remote access capabilities to ensure that users from subscribing institutions can effectively access their publications remotely.
The Library is keeping track of the resources offered, selecting those possibly relevant to the ICTP scientific community. The below information is regularly updated: resources are listed in alphabetical order of publisher/platform and are divided into temporarily free access, and accessible via ICTP VPN. We encourage you to share this information with colleagues and students who might be interested.

Although the ICTP remains closed, the Marie Curie Library staff is working from home. For further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
