Renske | 10668 comments Are access cards for academic books valid books or should we mark them as Not A Book? They have an ISBN and come from automatic imports. My first idea is they are not books, as it is not the book itself, on the other hand, how much difference is there with an ebook?

And if they are valid books, can we edit the titles and what should be the the format?

I mean this kind of editions:

I usually consider them books, as they are essentially buying access to the ebook version of the text.

Emy (emypt) | 5022 comments I'm not certain if this is correct, but I will often move the "MyEconLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card" or similar to either the edition or description field. Is that acceptable?

Seems perfectly reasonable to me.
