What is ICON Direct?

ICON Direct is the University of Iowa's initiative for ordering digital content from specific publishers and delivering this content to students and faculty. 

Inclusive access, also known in some schools as "Digital Direct" or "All Students Acquire" is a model of course content delivery that provides access to eTexts and online learning platforms (such as Mastering Chemistry or MyMathLab) automatically to the students enrolled in specific courses. The inclusive aspect of the model means that every student enrolled has the same content available on the first day of class. By delivering content through the ICON course site, ICON Direct ensures all students and faculty have access to their content in a common, easily accessible location.
