UNYP partners with Perlego to bring free digital textbooks to its students

  From September 2020, UNYP will be subscribing to the Perlego textbook platform. This partnership between UNYP and Perlego provides unlimited free digital textbooks to students that allows everyone to continue learning safely anywhere and at any time. Students and faculty will have free access to over 300k book titles, with the goal of 100% access to diverse course readings for graduate and undergraduate programs. While it is a considerable investment, we feel that the ensuring access and diversity will revolutionize the learning process. Free online access to a library of this size means that our students won't be confined to a single mandatory book per class, but can work with dozens of excerpts from different books while saving significant amounts of money on buying new books each semester. The free use of digital textbooks will prove to be part of a broader change in how the University of New York in Prague supports its students. The adoption and provision of technologies such as Perlego is a significant international trend for universities and colleges, and UNYP is proud to go with the times.
