Stratford University moved to RedShelf in Term 5 of 2018 for Ebooks. To access previous VitalSource books from your VitalSource account, students and instructors will need to access it from the Moodle Main Menu.

Note: Access to VitalSource depends on the licensing the publisher provides for the title. Contact your Campus Librarian with questions.
