During the Covid 19 outbreak, RedShelf is working with textbook publishers to provide free access to online editions through May 25th for students at non-profit, semester based colleges and universities. Students will need to create a free RedShelf account to access each title.
As the COVID-19 outbreak escalated in recent weeks, countless campuses have moved their on-ground courses to an online format and, in many cases, have asked students to leave campus altogether. Many of those students simply can’t access previously-purchased materials now locked in their dorm rooms.
Through our RedShelf Responds initiative we are providing free access to up to 7 digital textbooks (to students from nonprofit, semester-based colleges and universities) through May 25th, thanks to the generosity of our publishing partners.
VitalSource Helps is a program designed to support students and instructors who may have lost access to course materials due to a campus moving to distance learning to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This program is made possible by the leading publishers and resellers in US higher education. The program offers free access to tens of thousands of ebooks through May 25, 2020 to students and instructors at impacted 2 and 4-year non-profit institutions in the US.
All 700 textbooks published and currently available in HTML format on Cambridge Core are available regardless of whether textbooks were previously purchased. Free access is available until the end of May 2020.
Project MUSE is your trusted source for the highest quality books and journals in the humanities and social sciences from over 200 of the world’s most distinguished university presses and scholarly societies. In response to the challenges created by the global public health crisis of COVID-19, Project MUSE is pleased to support its participating publishers in making scholarly content temporarily available for free on our platform. With many higher education institutions moving into an exclusively online learning environment for the foreseeable future, we hope that easy access to vetted research in the humanities and social sciences, from a variety of distinguished university presses, societies, and related not-for-profit publishers, will help to support teaching, learning, and knowledge discovery for users worldwide.
The following publishers have chosen to temporarily make content freely available on Project MUSE. Each publisher designates the specific content and for how long it will be freely available on MUSE. We will update this list on a daily basis.
