OUP Resources on Coronavirus

Many of you who teach courses have suddenly found yourselves preparing to move your classes online as COVID-19 continues to affect campuses across the country.

At Oxford University Press, we understand the challenges of building an online course, even in the best of circumstances. Whether you are an adopter of an Oxford University Press text or not, we can help you. Below are a number of free resources that will help you and your students experience as little disruption as possible as you move to online teaching and learning.


The coming weeks will undoubtedly force everyone to rethink and change the way they work, particularly instructors. What won’t change is OUP’s commitment to providing world-class content and innovative course solutions that help you continue to do what you do best—teach! Let us know what we can do to help.

Many of our titles come with a library of free, digital teaching and learning resources, including videos, simulations, activities, flashcards, PowerPoint slides, quizzes, test banks, and more. All of this can be used to help turn your face-to-face lectures into dynamic, online ones.

Online Resources

Most of our digital resources have a Quick Start Guide to walk you through a fast and easy setup. This includes a quick guide to help you load our testing and other assessment material into your local LMS. For the balance of this term, we are suspending the requirement that you be an adopter of an OUP book to use those resources. So please browse our site and see if there is material that will help you in your class. 


If you are not already set up with a learning management system (LMS), we can, for our most popular titles, deliver a full course to Dashboard, our cloud-based courseware solution, within 72 hours.

These resources can all be accessed through our Ancillary Resource Center. If you do not already have an account, you can request one once you locate your book. Once you access them, you can, in most cases, load them into your institution’s existing learning management system (LMS). We have resources for both instructors and students.

If you do not already have one, please request a digital desk copy of your textbook. You would find these on your RedShelf account. If you are missing a particular book you are teaching from, you can request it from RedShelf via our online catalog.

eBook Desk Copies for You

Epigeum, part of Oxford University Press, produces online courses for academics and students. Epigeum provided access to various online courses to help support teachers get to grips with digital pedagogy. This offer has now ended as we enter the summer.


Epigeum have also been using their blog to share insights into healthy practices.

Online Teaching Courses

We’ve heard from many of you that some of your students are unable to access their physical textbooks left behind on campus, or copies on reserve in the library. We have partnered with our eBook providers RedShelf and VitalSource to supply FREE access to all OUP Higher Education titles on their sites for the balance of the Spring semester.*


To obtain books from VitalSource, please visit their COVID-19 help page.  You will need to access books through their app using a valid campus email address from an affected school.

For RedShelf, please visit their RedShelf Responds page. The program provides access through May 25th to nonprofit, semester-based colleges and university students.

Free Access to OUP Resources on Coronavirus and Related Topics

With the ongoing coronavirus situation, Oxford University Press has made content from online resources and leading journals freely accessible to assist researchers, medical professionals, policy makers, and others who are working to address this health crisis.

OUP participates in all major Inclusive Access programs. If your school has a program, it’s a great way to assure all students have access to the same resources delivered through your LMS.


It’s too late for this term, but please consider this for next term. Courses offering Inclusive Access would not have seen a disruption in the provision of course materials.
