Free access to digital resources during the period of confinement
Many publishers place their e-books and other digital resources free of charge, and others expand their subscribers' resources during the Covid-19 confinement period.
Due to the confinement caused by COVID-19, there are many publishers that, either offer all or part of their paid digital resources in free access, or they extend the resources accessible to their subscribers.
