How can my student upgrade their account to a full Individual Membership?

If your student already has a student login to Bookshare, it is easy to upgrade their account to a full Individual Membership. Simply have your student:

  1. Log in to Bookshare (using his/her student login)
  2. Select the "Upgrade to an Individual Membership" link on their My Bookshare page (under the four tasks listed at the top of the screen, where it says "Want to choose your own books?").
  3. Select the link to sign up and complete the online form (or have the parent or guardian complete the form if the student is under 18).

Once this process is completed, the student will be able to search for and access books of their choice. Please be aware that the student will now have full control over his or her user name and password. Teachers will no longer be able to edit the student's user name or password through their student roster.
