Ingram is innovating more and more in the digital textbook arena. While there are many conflicting studies on whether students actually like digital textbooks or not, the ball is rolling and I expect that they will have no choice in years to come.
Ingram has added sixty new publishers and 35,000 new digital textbooks and online course tools to its VitalSource Bookshelf platform. The new publishers include university presses and publishers such as Cengage Learning, Elsevier, Wiley, and McGraw-Hill. Currently VitalSource has 2.7 million users in 6,000 universities around the world.
