The message below is
from the account manager for the Hendrix
partnered with our digital course materials platform, VitalSource, and leading
publishers to launch VitalSource Helps, a program offering free access to eBooks
for students who may have lost access to course materials with the rapid move
to distance learning.
Access to an
expansive catalog of eBooks will be available for free to students at our
client institutions who have semester-based calendars that have chosen to
curtail physical teaching in response to COVID-19. Student access will last
through May 25th.
Since Hendrix is
semester-based and is implementing a shift from face-to-face to virtual
instruction, we have added your domain to the approved list. This means that
students will be able to access these free materials through VitalSource as
long as they log in using their official @hendrix.edu email address.
Students may begin
accessing these materials today at bookshelf.vitalsource.com. We are pleased to be able
to support Hendrix students during these times.
