How can students upgrade their account to a full Individual Membership?

Video Tutorial: Upgrade Your Account with an Individual Membership Youtube icon

If a student already has a student login to Bookshare, it is easy to upgrade their account to a full Individual Membership. You'll simply have the student or their parent/guardian if under 18:

  1. Log in to Bookshare (using his/her student login)
  2. Select the "Upgrade to an Individual Membership" link from the left menu on their My Bookshare page.
  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.
