OpenStax Content Now Available Through Digital Access Programs
November 15, 2017

Rice University-based publisher OpenStax announced that its open-source textbooks now are available through VitalSource and RedShelf, the digital textbook providers for the majority of U.S. campus bookstores. According to OpenStax, colleges and universities participating in inclusive-access programs -- programs where students are billed for all their digital textbooks and resources at registration -- will include OpenStax content for free or for no additional cost beyond a marginal platform.

In a press release, OpenStax said that students will have access to digital resources before a course begins as long as they do not opt out of the program during registration. RedShelf and VitalSource distribute digital resources to most campus bookstores, including independent stores and locations operated by Barnes & Noble Education and Follett.
