African Books Collective offer free resources on MUSE during COVID-19

Project MUSE Free Downloads

In response to the challenges created by the global public health crisis of COVID-19, Project MUSE is pleased to support its participating publishers in making scholarly content temporarily available for free on their platform. With many higher education institutions moving into an exclusively online learning environment for the foreseeable future, Project MUSE hope that easy access to vetted research in the humanities and social sciences, from a variety of distinguished university presses, societies, and related not-for-profit publishers, will help to support teaching, learning, and knowledge discovery for users worldwide.

African Books Collective (ABC) is an African owned, worldwide marketing and distribution outlet for over 3,000 titles from Africa. Founded, owned and governed by a group of African publishers, its participants are independent African publishers who share a common ethos of publishing from within African cultures, asserting Africa’s voice within Africa and internationally. They include scholarly and literary presses, and some children’s book publishers; research institutes; university presses; commercial presses – large and small; non-government organisations (NGOs); and writers’ organisations. The Basler Afrika Bibliographien are also part of the African Books Collective. Make use of this great opportunity and download for free many exciting reads.
