Cambridge University Press partners with Perlego on online textbooks

Cambridge University Press has partnered with online library Perlego to offer students access to digital textbooks.

Perlego will host a range of content from the publisher on its platform, which also includes titles from Pearson, Wiley and Cengage.

Giana Elyea, sales director for Trade and Higher Education at CUP, said: “We have been working hard to give students and lecturers access to the textbooks they need during the current crisis, both through our own website and by partnering with others.

"It’s great to add Perlego to that list of partners and I’m delighted that they are able to make a selection of our textbooks freely available on their platform.”

Perlego c.e.o. Gauthier Van Malderen said: “We’re excited and honoured to be partnering with one of the world’s most iconic publishing houses. From today, our users can access essential content from Cambridge University Press to aid in their studying and learning efforts.

“In the midst of challenging times, we’re working harder than ever with our partners to provide the best range of content that allows everyone to continue learning safely anywhere and at any time."

CUP recently made a range of books, research and learning materials free to access for teachers, students and researchers impacted by coronavirus.
