This COVID-19 book list has been assembled by Doody’s editorial team from information available in the Doody’s Review Service™ database. Although access to this database is typically restricted to paid subscribers to Doody’s Review Service, we are making information on these books freely available to the public in the hopes that one or more of them might prove helpful in providing the needed evidence, research, knowledge, or support that frontline workers need to provide the best possible care to their patients.

The list is compromised of two sections: books that focus specifically on COVID-19 and those from related fields. In each section, books are presented by copyright year, and then alphabetically by title within each copyright year. Each book record hyperlinks to all of the information available about the title from the Doody’s Review Service database. Please feel free to post the link to this page with your own relevant resources in an effort to make it known to as many healthcare professionals as possible on the frontlines of fighting this pandemic.
