Notre Dame Press Offers Expanded Access to Ebooks in Response to Coronavirus Pandemic

Author: Kathryn Pitts


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

Notre Dame Press is partnering with Books at JSTOR to make our full collection—more than 400 titles—available without charge for qualifying institutions. This new collection will be available until June 30, 2020.

John Lenahan, Associate Vice President at JSTOR, says, "The new ebook collection is available for JSTOR participants in our current ebook offering." He goes on to explain that this robust JSTOR collection from a broad cross-section of publisher partners will help advance scholarship, enable continued research, and prove the long-term value of digital resources and ebooks to academic institutions.

Michelle Sybert, Sales and Development Director at Notre Dame Press, says, "As a non-profit university press, we are deeply committed to encouraging intellectual exploration and fostering the next generation of scholars and thinkers.  We are proud to play a role in aiding our academic communities in adapting to online research and learning in this extreme moment."

The University of Notre Dame Press is the largest Catholic university press in the world, publishing academic and general interest books with a focus on the humanities and social sciences, including religion, theology, history, philosophy, political science and theory, medieval studies, Irish studies, Latin American studies, and international relations.
