The Cal State system will use Ingram Content Group's VitalSource content-delivery platform starting next fall:
VitalSource gives us the ability to integrate directly with our established systems," said Todd Summer, Director, Campus Stores Division, Aztec Shops. "That means students, whether purchasing on their own or using financial aid or scholarship funds, can continue to purchase content through the same channels and in the same manner as they have in the past. We believe VitalSource represents an important and exciting new option for our university communities." Dr. Gerard L. Hanley, Senior Director of Academic Technology Services for the California State University system, said: "VitalSource has been in the higher education space for many years. Their recent emphasis on making their platform accessible to all students was an important factor in our support of San Diego's use of their technology." William Chesser, Vice President and General Manager of VitalSource, said the pilot program "represents a big step forward for digital content delivery in post-secondary education." "The Digital Marketplace is not only paving the way for new content options on their campuses, but they are doing so in a way that ensures their students get powerful, equitable options," Mr. Chesser said. "We are proud that Ingram's VitalSource is part of the effort."
