If you have purchased a second hand textbook, you may be wondering if you can access the eBook that comes inside the book.

Some eBooks last for the lifetime of the book whilst other eBooks cannot be used again once they’ve been accessed before. In this case, a ‘Reactivation eBook’ will come in handy. This will give you access to the eBook again at a reduced price.


What is a Reactivation eBook and how do they work?

A Reactivation eBook is a product that gives you full access to an eBook again if it’s been used already by the previous owner. It’s not a physical item, but an additional eBook code that is used to reactivate the eBook in your second hand textbook. It gives it a second life!

You must have the second hand textbook with you when you are ready to use your Reactivation eBook because you will be asked to provide some information from inside the book.

Reactivation eBooks can be purchased at a reduced cost from Lilydale Books.


Why should I buy a Reactivation eBook?

If you already have a second hand textbook, there is no obligation to buy a Reactivation eBook unless it is listed on your school booklist as a requirement. Some schools will specify that it’s mandatory that students have access to the eBook, read on to find out why.

Purchasing a Reactivation eBook to access your eBook again means your teacher can add you to their digital classroom, assign tests, videos to watch and other interactive assessment tasks. The online access provides exclusive content that may not be found in the textbook alone.

Keep in mind there may be no need to purchase a reactivation eBook if the previous owner did not activate it to begin with. This is explained below.


How can I check if the eBook has been accessed?
