Annual Reviews removes access control in response to COVID-19 pandemic
To assist the many students, faculty, and researchers who are working and studying remotely
during the COVID-19 pandemic, effective today, we have made our journals available to all,

to extend this policy.

We at NewspaperArchive.com would like to extend our hand in these trying times. We understand many institutions are closing their doors to the public for health and preventative reasons. We would love to help by offering your staff & patrons free access to our 300 million page newspaper collection from the comfort of their own homes. This is a unique feature about our database - remote access to our site using a referring URL.
We would also like to offer free remote access to all other libraries who are not currently a part of our community. If you happen to know of any other libraries or institutions that could benefit from our services during these solemn times, we would be happy to extend free access to them during this global pandemic.
In order to obtain remote access, we will need either a referring URL, or an EZProxy IP address. If you are interested in setting this up, please let us know by responding to this email.
