Every time Pearson tells me I have to go to VitalSource, I send an email request for the PDF to disability.resources at pearson.com<mailto:disability.resources at pearson.com>. It works, but takes a couple weeks.

I will not ever force a student over to VitalSource.

Subject: [Athen] Pearson Not Providing PDFs

Hello, in the past I feel like I was able to get Pearson to provide me PDF files instead of going through VitalSource, but now they seem to be insisting on using VitalSource and not providing us PDF files. Does anyone have a contact at Pearson from whom they get PDFs, or do we just need to suck it up and accept VitalSource as the solution?
