eBook Access for Students
Due to School and College Closings

We know that schools and colleges closed quickly, leaving many of your students without access to their required reading.

To help your students during this difficult time, HarperCollins is providing these resources for K-12 schools and for college instructors and their students. 

All terms valid in the United States only.


K-12 Schools

K-12 teachers or librarians who want to assign an eBook for an entire class to read simultaneously can access HarperCollins’s top-adoption titles through school and library vendors on a Classroom Set model, where the eBooks are available for access by multiple students at once. 

  • Cost is on a per-student basis and varies based on the length of time the student needs access. 
  • Over 1,000 HarperCollins titles are available on this model, including Wheelock’s Latin, Bridge to Terabithia, Brave New World, The Alchemist, and Native Son
  • HarperCollins ebook vendors for this model include: Overdrive, Actively Learn, and Copia.
  • Teachers and librarians should look for this model from their preferred vendor under the names “Class Sets” or “Pay Per Use.”
  • If the book you have assigned as required reading is not available through your vendor, please let us know, and we will do our best to quickly add it to your vendor's catalog.



College instructors who need to make eBooks available to students who can’t access their physical books can receive free eBook copies for their students. Access to the free eBooks will expire May 25, 2020.  If a title is not available in eBook format, we will not be able to provide access. All complimentary eBooks are given at the discretion of HarperCollins. We will not accept requests from individual students.
