CalState University launching digital textbook pilot

From an Ingram press release:

The Digital Marketplace, an initiative of the California State University Office of the Chancellor, announced plans today to launch a digital textbook pilot this fall using the Ingram VitalSource digital content delivery platform.

Starting in the fall 2010 semester, the pilot is planned to begin at San Diego State University and will be implemented through the university bookstore. Students will receive their content through the Aztec Bookstore portal, and will access their e-textbook titles through the industry-leading VitalSource Bookshelf® software.
