Many textbook publishers have partnered with VitalSource to make their e-textbooks freely available through the end of May. In order to access, faculty and students work through VitalSource's Bookshelf to create an account using their Illinois State University email. Books available through VitalSource will not show up when searching the Milner Library catalog. Individuals will need to go through Bookshelf to see if books they want to access are available.
Another service, RedShelf, is also making e-textbooks available.
