Search & Navigation

When learners want a refresher on a specific concept but don’t remember where in the text it’s located, they can use Bookshelf’s search function. If they don’t remember which item covered what they’re trying to find, they can search across their entire Bookshelf library. For even more information, they can search Wikipedia by highlighting a word.

Sync & Share

Sync & Share

Bookshelf syncs the last page read, bookmarks,and annotation across all of your learner's devices. Those synced annotations can also be shared with groups for peer collaboration. Trainers or admins can share their own annotations with their groups to call out key concepts.
