​​The AUB University Libraries (UL) announce their COVID-19 Research Guide, providing valuable resources for both, healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses and practitioners) and researchers about the COVID-19 outbreak and recent research related to this topic.

This timely guide also includes general information for health consumers (public), helping them get their facts and information from reliable and official sources.

In addition to international and regional academic sources and articles, the guide includes initiatives done at the institutional level at AUB, along with clear and illustrative reports, maps and videos related to COVID-19.
