Last year at AHG in the Publisher Faceoff session, DSO representatives said
they needed free access to RedShelf and VitalSource in order to help their
students learn how to use the software, and to check the accessibility of
the title.

Below is the link and more information. You probably also received this
through the ATN mailing list.
