About our e-books

HERCHER  e-books are available from Vital Source, an Ingram Content Group company. Like other e-books, Hercher/Vital Source e-books are searchable and students can highlight and annotate them. Unlike e-books offered by competitors, ours are not merely rented or available as an online viewable text for a specified amount of time. Students can download our files onto any computer or tablet device for perpetuity; students own the files. Students can also access their text on line for 1 year. In addition, our e-books match our printed texts exactly so there is no need for translation when referring to pages or contents.
