Providing affordable textbook solutions remains a top priority at Barnes & Noble College.
This fall, more than 60 percent of titles were available for rent and our rental sales increased 37 percent over last year. And, as part of our commitment to ensuring your campus store remains their first choice for textbooks, we invested in an online search strategy that helped educate students on their textbook options. Our dedicated bnctextbookrental.com site provided students an easy way to quickly search and purchase from your campus store.
In the coming year, we’ll be expanding our “Course Materials, Your Way” program – which enables us to quickly determine perceptions, needs and current ways students purchase and faculty choose course materials – so we can deliver the optimal solution for your school. These solutions include course fee programs, digital bundles and other campus-specific initiatives.
