New to VitalSource?

If you have recently migrated from CourseSmart to the VitalSource platform, welcome! You will find many of the same features that you enjoyed at CourseSmart, with additional features to enhance your experience!

How to View Content

With VitalSource, you can view content online through your browser with Bookshelf Online. To view content offline, you will no longer "check out" your books in the browser. Instead, you will be able to download your book onto two computers AND two mobile devices using the VitalSource Bookshelf application. You can also manage your machine activations without requiring assistance from support.


Notes and Highlights Sharing

Your notes and highlights will sync across all your devices, and you can share your notes and highlights with instructors and students. Please note that you will need to have the same ISBN in each account to view shared highlights.
