The current global COVID-19 pandemic affects the worldwide information community and therefore several publishers are offering temporary access to additional electronic resources.
In addition to all content that we’re already subscribing to, here’s the list of resources that are now accessible with a library card of the National Library, University Library, LIST or LIH. The list will be updated regularly.
How to obtain a library card
BnL: please check https://bnl.public.lu/fr/actualites/articles-actualites/2020/prevention-COVID-19-service-public.html
University: If you are a university student or staff member and do not have a library account yet, please request access by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from your University email account.

Remote access to British Periodicals
British Periodicals is temporarily accessible remotely. Usually, this database is only accessible within the University of Luxembourg.
British Periodicals provides access to the searchable full text of hundreds of periodicals from the late seventeenth century to the early twentieth, comprising millions of high-resolution facsimile page images.

Including coverage of the COVID-19 outbreak, this database curates openly available content related to coronaviruses. It includes thousands of open-access articles from the world’s leading publishers as well as current research from pre-print repositories such as arXiv and will continue to grow and evolve as more is learned about the pandemic.
