Booktopia and VitalSource Launch Digital Textbook Partnership

Booktopia, Australia's largest online bookstore, and VitalSource®, the world's premier education technology provider, have announced a partnership to provide Booktopia customers access to digital textbooks for the first time through Bookshelf®, VitalSource's best-in-class eReader platform. University students purchasing their textbooks through Booktopia can learn more about this new etext option here.

Bookshelf by VitalSource's unmatched reading and studying experience features a full suite of built-in study tools, including highlighting, notetaking, flashcards, and Bookshelf CoachMe®, a free practice feature that provides students with immediate feedback in a low-stakes, confidence-boosting environment. Learners have full content controls, with dark mode, margin sizes, and fonts, including open dyslexic, as well as read aloud and search.

Booktopia Acting Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Stalley, said: "VitalSource provides unparalleled resources for students around the world and has set the bar worldwide for its technology capabilities. We're delighted we can bring their platform to the Australian market, further underlining our long-standing commitment to being the go-to destination for students with the unrivalled products and services we provide to support their learning and development."

Booktopia's higher education and vocational textbook selection includes millions of titles, searchable by subject matter, university, career path (including medicine, nursing, law, and education) and now, by format. Regardless of how they are purchased, etexts download immediately through Bookshelf and are fully accessible offline.
