Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response: To help you navigate the challenge of transitioning to teaching online, we have opened up access to the following resources to help you set up and manage an online course quickly and successfully, at no charge to you or your students.
In collaboration with our digital textbook partners, we are freeing up access to SAGE eTextbooks to help ensure students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic will have free access to digital learning materials through the remainder of the spring 2020 semester.
Students will be able to have free access through their university library to an extensive range of SAGE textbooks on the Kortext platform, provided via the newly established Free Student eTextbook Programme (FSTP). Kortext, in conjunction with Jisc, will be providing free access to key learning resources from participating publishers during this crucial revision and assessment period. Find out more

We are taking part in extended library access schemes for SAGE books, extending existing licenses to unlimited access until mid-June so that university libraries can provide students with continued access during this time. This scheme is in collaboration with a number of UK and International library supply accounts including ProQuest, EBSCO, Askews & Holts Library Services and Dawson Books. Please contact individual accounts for further information and queries.
Many of our textbooks are available as electronic inspection copies, providing instant access to the book online through VitalSource. From the SAGE website, click on the link at the start of the book description, where you see the following instruction: 'Lecturers, request your electronic inspection copy here.' Alternatively you can search directly on the VitalSource website.
