CAUL has contacted all consortium vendors and asked them to supply details of paywalled content that they are making freely available during the COVID-19 crisis. So far CAUL has had a very strong response from vendors and collated details in a list that has been forwarded to the CAUL Content Community. CAUL will continue to update the list as further content becomes available, and will also be alerting the community in regards to any lists from other consortia or organisations.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and current global health emergency, along with many other organisations, CAUL has cancelled all in-person events and meetings that were due to be held over coming months.

CAUL has created a 2020 Virtual Event Series to compensate for the cancellation of other events including the two Council meetings that were due to be held in March and September 2020.
