Students in a course with a textbook using the BryteWave (Redshelf) e-Reader will receive an email with login information. Details from Follett in box below.

For Inclusive Access texts under the ACCESS Follett program, the Campus Bookstore will send an email to all students with access link to the BryteWave shelf.

  • BryteWave (RedShelf) account will be created using the student’s academic email address. An email will be sent to the student with a link to their shelf. This link will take the student to that BryteWave shelf account where they can log into and find the preloaded material.
  • Students can also use the login URL for BryteWave which is now located at: https://brytewave.redshelf.com/
  • While they can get in at the URL, they may have to request a password change if they don’t follow the activation link that was emailed to them.
  • All ACCESS students will receive an email that looks like this sample. If the student clicks the link in the email, it will pass them into their BryteWave shelf (which is the same as if they logged in at the login URL) and will be able to complete an account set up. (set password, etc.)
