Van Schaik introduces an "Africa-ready" electronic textbook (e-Textbook) solution!
As digital technology is continually evolving, academic materials benefit from these advances.
Van Schaik has made a significant investment in ensuring that our e-book solutions meet the needs of students, academics, libraries and researchers.
In the past, access to electronic versions of books for Academic purposes was limited to on-line use only or costly single access off-line use. With Ingram Digital Vitalsource e-textbooks you can access your e-textbooks in a way that is convenient for you. It's not just a boring .pdf like some other e-books out there, it's interactive.

Van Schaik new e-Textbooks are available for use on your PC, Tablet, laptop or mobile phone. User-friendly and most importantly, available for off-line usage where many users may not have continuous internet access.
Some benefits of this solution include:
The e-textbook content is provided under agreement from individual publishers. If there are any books that we don't have available in Vitalbook format, just let us know which title and ISBN by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org clearly stating that you require the e-book of it.
Ingram is the largest distributor of Academic textbooks in the US, therefore the list of available titles surpasses any other offerring on the market.
