- Do ebooks have page numbers?Our ebooks are reflowable epubs. This means the book pages will adjust to fit on your screen and will not look exactly like the pages of a printed book. However, most of our books do have physical page mapping. This means you will be able to browse through an ebook and see the corresponding physical page number. See Vitalsource Page Navigation for more information.

- How do I request ADA accommodations?
CAP is happy to supply books in pdf format for students with documented disabilities (we do not have audio books). We require proof of purchase of a new book—not a used book—and a statement on school letterhead, signed by a representative of the school's disabled student services staff, that the student understands that Carolina Academic Press is providing the file for his or her exclusive use, and the student agrees not to distribute the file or its contents in any manner.
The request and documents may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Email requests must come from a faculty or staff school email account. Be sure to include the title and edition of the book and an email address.
