Teleworking Resources

Library Telework Updates for SI Staff

The new Library Telework Updates for SI Staff page includes information about changes in access to Smithsonian Libraries spaces and services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Expanded Access to Electronic Resources

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many publishers and vendors announced they are removing paywalls and other restrictions to select electronic journals, books, and other resources. The new Expanded Access to Electronic Resources page provides access to many temporary (and some permanent) resources that are not available through the Libraries OneSearch tool or library catalog, SIRIS. For instructions on accessing the Libraries e-resources from anywhere, see Off-Site Access to Smithsonian Libraries’ Electronic Resources.

Newly Added Subscriptions

Announcing the Smithsonian Map Collections Database!   

For well over a century and a half, Smithsonian researchers have used maps to aid in their research and document their journeys. Smithsonian Map Collections is an online database identifying more than 43,000 of these maps, which date from the 1820s to the present. Currently the database is only available to Smithsonian staff with network access, and not to the public. Smithsonian Teleworkers: Go to our telework site and paste https://si-maps.si.edu in the box located in the upper left corner. To learn more about the database, view this short video (Smithsonian access only).  

Canceled Subscriptions

This page about canceled subscriptions is a resource for library users and librarians to confirm the status of a title if you encounter problems with electronic access.
