Free access to Academic textbooks on Cambridge Core
Due to performance issues caused by unprecedented demand and reported misuse, we have had to temporarily suspend the free access to textbooks. We apologise for the inconvenience caused and are working to address these concerns to reinstate free access as soon as possible.
Cambridge University Press is making higher education textbooks in HTML format free to access online during the coronavirus outbreak.
Over 700 textbooks, published and currently available, on Cambridge Core are available regardless of whether textbooks were previously purchased.
We recommend a Laptop/Desktop computer with Google Chrome for the best viewing experience. Textbook content is read only and cannot be downloaded.
Free access is available until the end of May 2020.

Update on conference attendance
Regrettably, the Academic division of Cambridge University Press has decided to cancel all attendance at conferences and events until the end of May. We feel that this is the right decision to minimise any risks to our team and to the wider community. We will keep the situation under review. We have not taken this decision lightly as we know how important academic conferences are to the community and our publishing partners.
In the meantime, we are extending the online discount to 30 percent to match the discount we would have offered to delegates in attendance at the conference. Our teams are also working with conference organisers where possible to offer other forms of support to these communities.
Simply visit our Conferences page, find the relevant meeting, and add the desired title to your cart. The discount will automatically be applied.
