How It Works
- Purchase an eTextbook from the bookstore.
- Download and install MyScribe. MyScribe is a free application for PC and Mac. It helps you view, study and collaborate around eTextbooks and PDF files.
- Start studying.
Note: When you purchase your eTextbook from the University bookstore (Follett), the instructions to download MyScribe will be printed on your receipt. If you order your books online through Follett, the instructions (with access code) will be e-mailed to your Trine account within 48 hours (Monday-Friday).
Benefits of e-Textbooks

Social Networking Function - share documents, notes and feedback with other students.
Lightweight - the eTextbooks are stored on your computer, so there are no heavy books to carry.
Save money - eTextbooks are more cost effective for students.
