As a result of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, new evidence and information are created and shared at a record pace. The links provided on this page are from vendors that have made their resources accessible to support and increase access to medical information.
This list of COVID-19 resources is a living document and will continually be updated. It has been curated to assist staff, and should be used as a supplement to official information that is posted on your hospital and public health unit website. All resources are free to use, with the exception of Clinical Skills, which is only available to sites with a subscription.
Use the Full-Text Finder and search for the publication (journal title or book title) to see if the Regional Library has access.

If you require more assistance, please contact the librarian and ask for more in-depth training. Training can be provided one-on-one or as part of a group. Training can be done in person or on the phone, depending on your location and the librarian's travel schedule.
