The Redshelf Admin tool can be used to deliver e-book content or to provide access to digital homework platforms as part of the ISU Bookstore’s Immediate Access program. These homework platforms may include McGraw-Hill’s Connect or ALEKS platforms; Pearson’s MyLabs, Mastering Series, or Revel platforms; and Norton’s Smartworks. Redshelf is necessary for students who may wish to opt-out of the program. It is also needed for instructional email communication between the bookstore and the students enrolled in the course. It’s very important that the steps below are followed else the e-content may not be delivered, students will be unable to opt-out, and the ISU Bookstore cannot communicate important information to students.
