Accessing your online materials

Did you know most of our textbooks come with online materials to help you study smarter, collaborate with classmates, and apply your learning outside the classroom? Keep reading to learn more about online materials for your textbook.


Most online materials require you to enter a unique access code to unlock and access the product. You will have an access code under any of the following conditions:

  • You purchased a new print book with online materials from either the HK website or from a bookstore.
  • You purchased an ebook with online materials from either the HK website or a select ebook vendor. Ebook vendors that offer HK access codes include VitalSource, Amazon, and Redshelf, and others.
  • You purchased access to online materials from the HK website or from a bookstore.

If you purchased a used book, the access code will no longer unlock the online materials. Don’t worry! You can still purchase an access code for online materials related to your textbook for a reduced price. Visit our website and search by author name or title to find your textbook. Look for a version of the product with a label below the cover indicating “HKPropel Access,” or “Online Video.”
