Vital Source Technologies Inc. was founded in 1994 with a vision of bringing learning and development resources into the digital age. Vital Source was acquired by Ingram Industries in 2006 as part of the formation of Ingram Digital Group. Today, Vital Source is Ingram’s fastest-growing business, and our Bookshelf platform is the most preferred and most used e-textbook delivery system in education. We have delivered digital content to more than 8 million students in 200 countries and territories worldwide, and we have more than 500,000 titles available in distribution from more than 750 education publishers.
Vital Source has a long track record of serving Health Science programs. VitalSource Bookshelf offers a comprehensive suite of applications that allows end users to read and interact with content anytime, anywhere. Students are able to download or read their e-textbooks online, search content, create highlight sections and make and share notes — with or without access to the Internet. Vital Source powers the best online/offline/mobile e-textbook experience. The VitalSource Bookshelf platform features full native applications for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android, as well as a best-of-breed browser-based application. Students and faculty can use as many titles at a time as they like, online or offline. In addition, we deliver a curriculum solution to Health Science programs. Students receive their entire library on day one and receive updated editions while enrolled in school.
Combining the education and technology background of the Vital Source team with the book industry’s resources and visionary leadership of Ingram, Vital Source is firmly positioned as a market leader in the digital learning space.
