What is an Organizational Membership account?
Organizational Members (OM's) are qualified Bookshare users that are registered on an Organization's Bookshare account. Sponsors, generally teachers or other school staff, add students to their school's roster as Organizational Members.
Organizational Members can log in to their own Bookshare account once a Sponsor creates a username and password for them. However, Organizational Members have limited access to our books as they can only download books that have been shared with them via a Reading List through a Bookshare integrated application.
Organizational Memberships are free for individual users, as all subscription costs are covered by the Organization itself. For more information about our Organization costs, please visit our Subscription Fees page.
