Extended Abstract

VitalSource is the most integrated, comprehensive resource for delivery of digital content to students. However, that resource is often threatened by the misconception about cost and access to digital materials. Join this session to hear more about our inclusive access programs, our partners in delivery of these programs, statistics from hundreds of students about what they feel can make them more successful, and to see a demonstration of the Bookshelf® platform at the center of it all.
