Throughout August, we’re encouraging students to get ready for the new school year. You can start this now and get on the right foot by reading this blog and following the steps below.  In our last blog post, you read how to make sure your school or home accounts are up-to-date.  Today, let’s make sure you’ve got your books!

Get the books you need!

Start by getting your required book list from your school or DSS office, then follow these steps to success:

Go to www.bookshare.org and log in.

  1. Use the search feature located at the top of every page to look for books by title, author, or ISBN. You can also visit the Support Center for advanced search tips!
  2. If you’ve got your book, you’re all set and can save them to your Reading List for easier access later on.
  3. Can’t find the book you need? Visit our Support Center for tips on finding similar versions of the book you need and how to request that Bookshare add titles to the collection.
  4. You can also check out our nifty “Learn It Now” tutorial.  It will show you a step-by-step demonstration on searching and browsing for books!
