Integrating CafeScribe

On a campus level, CafeScribe is a scalable solution that can grow from one student to one department to entire campus integration. It is an affordable digital solution at both administrative and student levels. CafeScribe offers the ability to work within existing learning management systems (LMS) without the need for additional hardware, and there are no start up or maintenance fees for the institution. Ratex, BookLog and Virtual Store students can purchase CafeScribe using any available tender type.

Students can buy a CafeScribe digital textbook in your store by purchasing a 4x6 card which will be displayed on-shelf next to your traditional new and used textbooks. The card represents one of the hundreds of titles that are available in the digital textbook format. When a student pays for a digital textbook, the receipt for the purchase will contain a PIN/code that will grant access to the online content. The URL for the digital textbook website is printed on the digital textbook card. It's as simple as that. And, you do not get billed for any digital textbooks until the sale is made in your store.

In addition to the digital textbook cards, Follett will provide all of the in-store display materials you will need to let your customers know about this exciting new offering, including:

  • Plastic display holders for the digital textbook cards
  • Signage, 22x28 inch posters
  • Sales brochure
  • Receipt folder with instructions for activating the purchased digital textbooks
