For students who purchase at the Co-Op: Due to the Co-Op’s transition to an online store, and the closure of the physical Co-op Unimelb store in mid-March 2020, there are alternative methods for you to purchase their textbooks such as through VitalSource and Perusall for eText.
eTextbooks are published textbooks and readings in accessible digital formats. eTexts are instantly accessible and offer interactive features such as text searching, annotation, note taking and highlighting options. They also provide academics with access to reading and usage statistics.
