YYGS: Online Special Collections & Other Resources: Electronic Resources

A guide to accessing online special collections and other resources, from Yale and beyond.

Access Electronic Resources

During your time in YYGS, you may need access to material to help your academic research. This page provides information about where you can find electronic resources (e-books, e-journals, online magazines and newspapers, images, and more) by format and discipline.

Note: Because you do not have a Yale NetID you will not be able to access the electronic resources that Yale provides. However, the resources listed here are freely available on the web and include both scholarly and popular sources. This means that even after you leave YYGS you should be able to access them - hooray!

If you prefer a single search experience:

  • Search Google Scholar for content to try to find freely available PDFs on the web. Just keep in mind that not all the content will be available to access.
