Search, build, review and publish your own custom textbook on our new custom publishing platform, Compose! Compose is a database of Nelson and Cengage learning published materials, through which you can easily build, chapter by chapter, a resource that suits the unique needs of your course. Compose allows you to build your custom resources yourself or with the help of your Learning Solutions Consultant (LSC), review all content, choose from our cover gallery, upload and incorporate your own original materials, preview price quotes and ultimately have control over the resource you want to create. To sign up, please go to Compose, click Register and complete the required information fields. You will be granted immediate access to the site and within 24 hours an administrator will confirm your status and link your account to your LSC, who can assist you with all your Compose-related queries. Your LSC can even build your solution for you and send you a sample to preview through your account! If you need a walkthrough of Compose, or help signing up, please Contact your LSC or the Custom Team.
