Resources and Tips to help during COVID-19

Free Resources (General)

Public Library Resources

Many public libraries are closed to the public. However, public libraries are rising to the occasion and providing digital resources for their patrons during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are at home check out your local public library's website to learn more about what they are offering. As a student of Union, you will be able to request an e-library card to the Jackson Madison County Public Library, if you do not already have a library card. 

Please check the Jackson Madison County Public Library website for the latest information on their services.

If you are wanting physical resource from Union's Library, please contact Melissa Moore at
