Open and Temporarily Free Resources - Fun Stuff/Stress Relief

Temporarily free eBooks

Project MUSE Access:

  • Among the publishers currently opting to make content free on Project MUSE are Johns Hopkins University Press (all books and journals), Ohio State University Press (all books and journals), University of Nebraska Press (all books and journals), University of North Carolina Press (all books), Temple University Press (all books), and Vanderbilt University Press (selected books). We expect to announce additional participants and will continually update the list of publishers offering free access to content.

  • Content that is freely available on the Project MUSE platform during the COVID-19 crisis will display a distinctive “Free” icon: , different from the “OA” icon: used for fully open access content on MUSE. 
  • MUSE search results include any content to which a user has access. Selecting "only content I have access to" will offer the researcher any relevant free or OA articles and books. There are over 2,000 open access books and a small number of fully OA journals on the MUSE platform.
