VitalSource Helps supports students at universities who may have lost access to course materials due to face to face on campus teaching moving online to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Students and instructors at impacted institutions in the UK and Ireland can now access an expansive catalogue of etexts through 30th June, 2020, at no charge. This programme is made possible by the support of leading publishers in higher education.
Students simply login to the VitalSource Bookshelf app using their university email address and can then find and view course materials from participating publishers via VitalSource’s Explore capabilities within Bookshelf.
As leaders in course materials and education technology, we are committed to doing our part to support students, instructors, and higher education institutions in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
