Week 3: VitalSource e-books (REMINDER)

PLEASE READ!  This is an important reminder for all students using a “new” VitalSource e-book this term.

In week 3 of the term (this week), you must click on the VitalSource e-book link within your course Canvas shell.

Using your iPad? To renew your e-book on the iPad, you must use the browser-version of Canvas (using Safari or Chrome) instead of the Canvas mobile app.

Once you click the e-book link within Canvas (using a web browser) you will have access to the book for four years.

Please allow a few minutes for the renewal to sync with the VitalSource Bookshelf app on your mobile devices.  If the e-book renewal does not automatically sync with the Bookshelf app, click on the “Update Library” option from the app’s main menu (see image below).

To download and install the latest version of Bookshelf for your Mac, Windows, iOs, Andrew, Chromebook or Kindle device, please follow this link: https://support.vitalsource.com/hc/en-us/articles/201344733-Bookshelf-Download-Page
