New User - Help!

Hello! I am a new user to bookshare and serve as an associate to a visually impaired student. I have an account through our school organization, but when I try to download a title, my name is not on the list of users -- just the students. What are we doing wrong? How do I get access to the book I need?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Sandy,  You are most likely signed up as a "sponsor" which allows you to add students, manage accounts and create/assign Reading Lists and books.  However, as a sponsor, you cannot actually access a title (unless it is freely available - no copyright).  Only the student (member) will have direct access to the books since they qualify with a disability. I hope this helps!
