COVID-19 Library Guide

The purpose of this guide is to provide resources related to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). NOTE: This Guide supplements but does not supersede the COVID-19 information provided by the UT Southwestern Emergency Operations Center.

What is Coronavirus Disease 2019?

SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes COVID-19, the disease.

COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 can spread from person to person, mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. COVID-19 is similar to how influenza and other respiratory viruses are spread, usually by coming within 6 feet of an infected individual. To a lesser extent, it can be spread from touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching one's face.

Other Important Information

Please Note

In the past few months, there has been a vast amount of biomedical information produced about COVID-19. The Health Sciences Digital Library and Learning Center has created the COVID-19 Resources Library Guide to quickly refer the UT Southwestern community to high-quality – i.e., primarily clinical and research – information about COVID-19. This Guide supplements but does not supersede the COVID-19 information provided by the UT Southwestern Emergency Operations Center. It will be updated as the COVID-19 information landscape evolves. Please email the Library if you have identified other key resources that we should consider for inclusion.
