Some of those ebooks are available for sale through ebook sellers such as RedShelf and VitalSource, both of which are offering special access during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Please let us know if there is something in particular that you need us to try to acquire, and we will research the availability for institutional access.  More information and contact information can be found here: https://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/services/colldev.aspx.
