In light of the ongoing disruption to on-campus learning, Coahoma Community College has partnered with digital course material providers to assist students in need. 

VitalSource, a digital course platform, and leading publishers have launched 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.  

If students previously accessed textbooks via the library, shared a book with a classmate, or left their books on campus, visit bookshelf.vitalsource.com to access free eBooks through May 25, 2020. VitalSource Helps provides access to an expansive catalog of eBooks, but some content may not be available.  

To access free materials from VitalSource, users must use their CAMPUSDOMAIN.edu email address to log in or create an account. Before getting started, it is encouraged that users review the student FAQ.  

Additionally, RedShelf has a similar program in place to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, RedShelf Responds

In this program, any student with their ".edu" email address can access up to 7 free eBooks until May 25. Here are some helpful links:
