If you have questions about downloading MUSE's resources, feel free to contact me.

As a fellow librarian who has worked in academic libraries, if I may echo other people's suggestions - there are many resources for people to access during these difficult times: Internet Archive, Project Gutenberg, Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), Library of Congress Digital Collections (World Digital Library, Smithsonian libraries too), HathiTrust, and various state and national libraries.

Thank you and good luck everyone,
