We are a learning organization
ITHAKA awarded $500,000 grant to bring the voices of America’s incarcerated to the public
We are a not-for-profit with a mission to improve access to knowledge and education for people around the world. We believe education is key to the well-being of individuals and society, and we work to make it more effective and affordable.
What we do
We help make higher education and access to knowledge more affordable; we improve outcomes for students and researchers; and we preserve knowledge for future generations.
Knowledge for everyone
Technology offers us unprecedented opportunities to deliver knowledge affordably to a global community. Through our digital libraries and learning platforms, we deliver uninterrupted access to collections from academic libraries, publishers, and museums around the world to millions of students, teachers, and researchers in 180 countries.
College access, affordability, and student success
Everyone deserves access to higher education, regardless of their economic resources and circumstances. Our research and advising focuses on how colleges and universities can enroll and better serve underrepresented and low-income students to help them thrive and graduate.
Preservation and collections
Knowledge builds on the past. As we work to improve access to knowledge today, we are equally concerned about preserving it for the future. We provide sustainable preservation services for libraries and publishers as well as research and guidance on collection and preservation strategies.
Innovation in research and teaching
As technology continues to advance, so do our opportunities to overcome barriers and conduct research and teach in new ways. Our teams develop and scale innovative approaches for scholars and students to gain insights from vast stores of information and from one another.
Empowering others
We multiply our impact by empowering others to bring change to their organizations, campuses, and communities. We bring leaders together, share best practices, and put tools into the hands of those working with students and researchers every day to deliver insight and improve outcomes.
Our services
We help institutions and individuals accelerate the impact of research and learning through diverse services.
Journals, books, images, and primary sources on a platform for teaching and connecting ideas
Media for teaching and learning from the world’s leading museums, artists, and scholars
Community-supported preservation of e‑journals, e‑books, and digital collections
