Other Electronic Resources

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, a multitude of new e-resources have been made freely available by participating publishers and educational content platforms. Please note that you may be required to create a free account to access some of these materials, and that they are only available temporarily. We’ve included information regarding the duration of free access for each of the collections below.


The Library is closed until at least May 1st 2020, following the Government of Quebec’s guidelines. If you currently have books on loan, do not attempt to return them. Hold on to them until the college re-opens. You will not be charged any fines during the college’s mandatory closure. Make sure you consult the Dawson College COVID-19 Updates page to get the latest information regarding the college’s activities during the closure.
