  • Embedded in your course shell on Canvas. These books are already included in your course and you do not pay for them. More on logging onto Canvas. 
  • Available through your Cengage Unlimited subscription. You have already paid for your Cengage Unlimited subscription and eBooks in your tuition and fees. More on Cengage Unlimited.
