Inclusive Access Materials Guide

Warning exclamation
Please be aware: Information on this page pertains exclusively to Alaska Middle College School (AMCS) students who are currently enrolled in the program. All other UAA students should direct textbook questions to their professors, their advisors, or the UAA Online Bookstore.


Inclusive access materials, or Day One Digital materials, are textbooks and learning platforms provided to you by your professor when you enroll in their class. Because your professor is the one giving you access to these materials, they can only be found in specific places. This webpage contains instructions about how to find inclusive access materials for most classes. Remember, if your professor tells you how to find your materials and their instructions are different from the ones on this page, follow your professor's instructions.

Step 1: Find your course materials

  1. Visit the UAA Bookstore homepage and select the green LOG IN page in the middle of the page.
  2. Use your UAA username and password to log in.
  3. At the top of the screen, choose the My Courses tab. You can view the materials you need for each of your classes here. Select the class or classes that list inclusive access materials in your textbook list.
  4. If you do not see your materials listed here (or if it only says "inclusive access"), go back to the top right corner of your screen and select the small down arrow next to your name. This will bring up a dropdown menu.
  5. Select your Elibrary. Your inclusive access materials will be listed here if you couldn't find them when you selected your class.

Step 2: Access and use your course materials

Most course materials can be accessed directly through your Elibrary on the UAA Bookstore website. You may see a link to VitalSource, or a code for your designated learning platform, listed directly in your Elibrary.

Some exceptions include:

  • Pearson learning platforms: If your learning materials are MyLab or another Pearson platform, your code may be emailed to you. Check your university email often! If you have never accessed your university email before, visit the UAA email webpage and choose the green button labelled "Login to Google Apps at UA." Log in using your UA username and password.
  • When you check your My Courses or Elibrary, if you see a message next to your learning materials that states "This item is available directly through your school portal," you can access them through your course on Blackboard. Look for instructions from your professor about how to find your learning materials through Blackboard.

If you have any questions about your inclusive access materials, email or call 907-786-1549 for assistance.
