Information about COVID-19 moves rapidly in our online environment. Here are tips for navigating the information you encounter about COVID-19.
As a student or researcher at Seattle University, you have access to a wide variety of scientific papers, peer-reviewed journal articles, and educational material covering COVID-19 and other Coronviruses. However that access doesn't extend to family and friends who may be searching for similar resources. Many scientific publishers, recognizing that free access to trustworthy information on this topic is of vital interest to people around the world, especially those who do not have or cannot afford the sort of access Seattle University provides you, have taken down their paywalls on some or all of the recent scholarship on Coronaviruses and this outbreak. As we learn about such archives, we will link to them here.
