Setting up your Clever Integration with VitalSource

What is Clever Integration?

Setting up your Clever Integration with VitalSource

The Clever Onboarding process begins when a school notifies VitalSource that they want to use Clever as their method of integrating with VitalSource and accessing content.

Once VitalSource has your information, your Onboarding manager sends you an email invitation to start sharing your data.

Next, you will want to log in and set up sharing.
