Resources for Educators

In light of the immediate need for digital content for remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Harvard University Press is working with the library aggregators in support of their plans to provide expanded access for educators. While each arrangement is slightly different, all HUP titles purchased by institutions now include free upgrades from single-user to multi-user access through June 30th. We currently have arrangements with Proquest, EBSCO, JSTOR, Gardners, and DeGruyter. HUP makes all of our titles available electronically as a matter of course except in the case of rights or production issues.

Anyone needing electronic access for courses should be in touch with their home institution’s library for details of what is available.

Instructors looking for digital exam copies should refer to Examination Copies. If you have questions, please contact .

Our Resources for Educators features serve faculty looking for the best new and classic books for their students. If you have questions about these programs, contact (in North and South America) or (outside North and South America).

Responding to Boredom during Self-Isolation

No one likes to be bored, but it’s almost inevitable during this time of social distancing and self-quaratine. John D.
