As part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Notre Dame Press made content from digital resources freely accessible to scholars, students, and educators of higher education, helping to ensure instructors who needed to teach remotely had the necessary tools to support their students.

Notre Dame Press partnered with Books at JSTOR to make our full collection—more than 400 titles—available without charge for qualifying institutions until August 31. According to JSTOR usage data, 1,842 institutions in 95 countries utilized 407 Notre Dame Press eBooks during the first four months of the program. In addition to hundreds of colleges and universities in the United States, Notre Dame Press digital material was used at institutions across the globe, including Ankara University, American University of Beirut, Fudan University, HEC Paris, Sapienza University of Rome, Seoul National University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Sichuan University, South African Theological Seminary, Sudan University of Science and Technology, Tel Aviv University, Trinity College Dublin, University of Costa Rica, and Wuhan University, among others.

Partnering with JSTOR, Notre Dame Press is supporting the high demand of academic institutional needs for accessing monographs during this time of crisis. This includes helping many instructors and students access materials despite closure of physical library collections.

The University of Notre Dame Press is committed to maintaining an innovative and sustainable publishing program that makes accessible the ideas of today’s leading experts while fostering the next generation of scholars and thinkers. Although the world is confronted by an increasing number of imposing challenges, our books and authors are a powerful force for good in the world.
