Dear SISSA users

With the coronavirus outbreak disrupting campus activities around the globe, the MIT Press is offering libraries complimentary access to the MIT Press Direct collection of eBooks through the end of May 2020 to support faculty and students who are working and learning remotely.

To receive free access to more than 2,770 MIT Press eBooks via MIT Press Direct, librarians may complete this webform or reach out to Emily Farrell (, North America) or Jessica Lawrence-Hurt (, rest of world).


In addition, MIT is  partnering with ProQuest and EBSCO to allow multi-user access through mid-June to our eBooks purchased on their platforms. We are also working with Project MUSE and University Press Scholarship Online to expand access to backlist eBooks available on their platforms.

We are gracing access for existing subscribers to content hosted on our journals, CogNet, and MIT Press Direct platforms through May 31, 2020.

“The COVID-19 threat is unprecedented and will continue to cause  extreme disruption, both personally and professionally,” said George  Kendall, editor and publisher of Booklist Publications. “At Booklist,  published by the American Library Association, we want to help  minimize these disruptions where we can for all library staff along  with their students and patrons. With that in mind, we hope the  following information and resources will be helpful.”
