Inclusive Access:  
Offer Digital Materials

Right Through Your LMS

Thousands of campuses trust RedShelf to help them implement an "Inclusive Access" course materials model as a means of improving affordability and equity while simultaneously supporting organizational efficiency and sustainability.


With Inclusive Access, every student automatically receives their course materials—in a digital format and at prices that are below competitive market rates—by the first day of class, through their school’s Learning Management System (LMS). The discounted cost is typically billed directly to students’ accounts or incorporated into tuition, always with an option to opt-out should a student wish to do so.

Unmatched affordability and convenience

leads to high student participation (sell-through) rates 

Why It Works:

A Win-Win-Win

The Inclusive Access model creates a virtuous cycle of improved affordability and convenience for students, and greater financial sustainability for schools and publishers. It’s a win-win-win.

Increased revenue

provides incentive for publishers to offer lowest possible prices
