This guide was created by the University Libraries, Health Sciences Library. Our goal is to provide access to relevant and timely information about the 2019 Coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2) also known as (2019-nCov) and the infectious disease associated with the virus (COVID-2019). This guide is a work in progress. More content will be added as information and resources become available.
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). The current strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans (World Health Organization).
The University Libraries are committed to serving all of our students; this was true before COVID-19 and remains true during the UofM’s transition to online instruction. As always, we are ready to help with your research needs, and we are continually brainstorming innovative ways of making library resources more accessible during this time. We appreciate your patience as we work toward solutions that serve the best interests of our entire campus community.
This LibGuide provides recommendations for modified access to Library assistance and research materials for the duration of the Fall 2020 semester.
