Vital Source Ease of Use and Features

Using Vital Source’s search bar, you can search for a book by its title, author, or ISBN. You can also browse their books via their respective subjects. They have a whole range of categories, from common college subjects like Business and Economics, Medical, Education, Psychology, Mathematics, and Science, to more specialized topics like Art, Computers, Foreign Language Study, Law, Philosophy, and True Crime, and many more. Within each book’s product page, the rental and purchase rates are reflected. You can also see the exact expiration date for each rental period. The rental period varies for each book- some have 90-180 day variations, while others have a full year option. You can also purchase the book so that your downloaded copy does not expire, while your access to online materials offered by the book runs for a whole year.
