Using VitalSource Redemption Codes

Using VitalSource Redemption Codes 

Activate your VitalSource eTextbook by creating a Bookshelf account and redeeming the code in Bookshelf Online.     


With Bookshelf, you can read your eTextbooks online or download them to your computer or mobile device to read without internet access.  To get started with Bookshelf, you will need a Bookshelf account and a VitalSource Redemption Code. Your notes, highlights, bookmarks, and last page read are automatically synced, making it easy to pick up where you last left off.
