Sage Catalyst provides unlimited, university-wide online access to the title list, discoverable in 3 ways: 

  1. Via the library catalogue: MARC records are provided to customerso titles can be fully catalogued and made discoverable to university patrons. This is the main route via which student will find the textbooksWhen a patron finds a Sage Catalyst title in the library search results, it will open in VitalSource’s e-reader, BookShelfEach user will need to have a Bookshelf account, and will need to login before they can access the book – single-sign-on does not take the user all that way into the book. 

  2. Directly within VitalSource Bookshelf: All university patrons can access their own unique VitalSource Bookshelf online browser, or by downloading the app on their computer, smartphone, or tabletFaculty and students can download their titles here and access them offline. NB no offline access is currently allowed for Inspection Copies. 

  3. The institution’s own VLE/LMS:  Bookshelf integrates with campus LMS/VLEs for seamless student and instructor access. It also records real-time engagement activity, which is used to power VitalSource Analytics, including instructor dashboards, engagement dashboards, etc. Adding a book to the LMS is a self-serve process, and the process varies slightly depending on the LMS used – instructors can link to instructions from this page:
