New Resource | Public Books Database

A number of University presses, in response to the nationwide COVID-related lockdowns, have made books previously behind paywalls, open to the public.

A new website, Public Books Database, provides a central starting point for finding hundreds of freely accessible titles. The site is part of Public Books: a magazine of arts, ideas and scholarship. Access to scholarly texts varies by publisher, so probably best to check out what’s on offer sooner rather than later.
