What’s new on Bookshelf?

We have prepared a new version of the Cambridge Bookshelf. We made sure to keep your bookmarks, favourites and annotations saved in your books, which you will find available in the new version. If you used your eBooks between May 29th and June 1st, that information might not have been saved as we were preparing the migration to the new version, we apologise for any inconvenience that this might cause.

Our app is now mobile compatible and you will have an improved navigation that will allow you to quickly access to the different components of your Cambridge eBooks. The drawing, audio notes and dictionary features won’t be initially available, but we will have them ready as soon as possible and we will keep you updated once they are available
