To get a Boundless book into your Blackboard class, your LMS administrator will need to perform a one-time installation of the Boundless building block. Once that installation has taken place, you'll be able to add in any book and assignments you like! Please submit a support ticket with any questions and we will gladly screenshare with you to help resolve any problems.
