Creating a New Account with VitalSource Bookshelf
If you are new to VitalSource you will need to create a VitalSource account before you can view any books. If you did not purchase your eTextbooks through the VitalSource Store you will need a VitalSource Redemption Code.
* An internet connection is required for this process
To create your new account please launch Bookshelf and press the Register for an Account link. (Note if you already have an account please sign in with that account).
Complete Registration Form
You will need to fill out the form in full. Your redemption code is not case sensitive. Once the form is completed press the Register button. (If you forget to redeem your book in this step, please visit this article: Redeem a code with an existing account).
Download Book List
Your book list will download to your computer. If you did not entered a redemption code in step 2 your book list will be empty.
Download Your eTextbooks
After your book list downloads you will be asked if you want to start to download your books. Press Download if you wish to download all books, or Download Later if you wish to install books individually at a later time.
*If you did not enter your redemption code in step 2 this will not happen until you register your code.
