50% Off Out-of-Print Texts (ITOPL)


Share/Bookmark

Now is the time to start or give a boost to your collection of Out-of-Print, traditional Catholic texts!

Ite ad Thomam Out-of-Print Library (ITOPL) has revised its modus operandi and has now made it much easier and more affordable and convenient for patrons to access files.

1. Ite ad Thomam has decided to reduce the suggested donation for Ite ad Thomam Out-of-Print texts (scans of philosophical and theological texts on pdf), as follows:

  • With the exception of a few files, the suggested donation per file for all patrons (whether clergy, religious, or lay) is now reduced to $5 USD (previously $10 USD for non-clergy/religious).
  • A few files, which are larger than 300MB, are still $10 USD. These are delivered electronically via sendthisfile.com and take a considerably longer time uploading than the rest, which are delivered through sendspace.com. After you place your order via email, you will be notified whether your order includes any of these large files before they are sent to you.
  • Suggested donation for the entire collection (25+ DVD-ROMs) is now $500 USD (previously $1000 USD).

2. Now orders under 20 files are delivered electronically via www.sendspace.com (previously the limit was 10 files). Orders of 20 or more files are mailed in DVD-ROMs via Fedex. Please be sure to include your mailing address (no PO Boxes, please) in your order.

3. Please do not send your donation until you receive a paypal money request detailing the items ordered.

4. Clergy (priests, seminarians, etc.) and religious receive a bonus file package; please be sure to indicate that you are clergy/religious in your email.

5. Free sample pages of ordered files are now available upon request, in order to ensure satisfaction before the completion of the order.

6. For their $20 yearly membership, Ite ad Thomam Forum members are henceforth given temporary access (at least 30 days) to every file that is sent via sendspace.com.
