All our textbooks designed for use as core reading on undergraduate courses now publish simultaneously in print and as e-books. The e-books typically offer a mobile experience with the convenience of anywhere, anytime access. Some e-books are being developed to take the format further and offer students a fully immersive learning experience, packed with self-assessment activities and multi-media content. Talk to your publisher representative during your adoption decision making process to check format and availability.
Our e-books are typically 80% or less of the cost of the print equivalent and are available for students to purchase on a 4 year license, or for a 12 month rental. Our e-books are available to students directly from VitalSource and Kortext.
We are expanding our list of vendors but choose to work with e-book providers who offer the best user-experience both in terms of purchase options, as well as functionality and presentation of our content.
Typical functionality includes compatibility with a range of devices, notetaking and highlighting tools, mobile friendly presentation, and assistive technology for those with impairments. We are investing in our digital products and continually adding assessment activities and multimedia content to offer a fully immersive experience and offer extra learning support.
Academics or acquisition librarians who wish to purchase access to one or more textbooks for their students have more options available and should contact their publisher representative to discuss the best format and deal to suit their requirements and budgets. We can offer reduced prices for institutional wide access, so do ask us for a quotation.
Digital inspection copies:
Most of our inspection copies are now fulfilled as e-books where possible. Academics who wish to discuss the formats available, before placing their order can do so by contacting their representative. Digital inspection copies are delivered via the VitalSource, Kortext, or BibliU platforms.
