Can I create a demo or test account to use for training purposes?

Bookshare does not provide access to copyrighted books for training purposes because of copyright constraints.

For demonstration purposes, we suggest you use any one of the thousands of freely available titles (e.g. public domain or Creative Commons licensed) in the collection. These can be downloaded in several different formats.

For instance, you could demonstrate Black Beauty, by Anna Sewell, or The Future of Ideas, by Larry Lessig. If you require access to our tools or would like to demonstrate managing a membership, please contact us for access to a Bookshare demo account.
