Services IGI Global is Offering In Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
As Part of Our Efforts to Assist Librarian Customers with More Easily and Affordably Obtaining Titles in Electronic Format, IGI Global is Now Offering a 50% Discount on All E-Books and E-Journals Ordered Through IGI Global’s Online Bookstore*

To support libraries in providing their patrons with access to critical online resources, IGI Global is offering a 50% discount on perpetual access to e-books and e-journals. This opportunity is ideal to convert previously acquired print holdings to electronic format at a 50% discount and to obtain other needed titles in e-format. This enables institutions to seamlessly transition into online-only environments and aids in the continuation of knowledge and discovery during the COVID-19 pandemic.


As accessibility to online resources is of critical importance during the current pandemic protocol, IGI Global will assist in converting your previously acquired IGI Global print holdings to electronic formats directly through our InfoSci® platform, ProQuest's EBook Central®, or EBSCOhost. To take advantage of this offer, send us a list of IGI Global publications you would like to convert, and we'll provide a 50% discount off the electronic version list price and promptly facilitate the set-up and access.

You may also contact your preferred platform representative to request print to electronic conversions.

*The 50% discount is offered for all e-books and e-journals purchased on IGI Global’s Online Bookstore. E-books and e-journals are hosted on IGI Global’s InfoSci® platform and available for PDF and/or ePUB download on a perpetual or subscription basis. This discount cannot be combined with any other discount or promotional offer.
Offer expires June 30, 2020.
