Benefits of Digital Textbooks
Simply open one app or a browser on your device and see your entire library. Click on your desired eBook and start reading. It's that easy.
Digital textbooks cost less than print textbooks. You can save up to 80% when you make the switch.
With digital textbooks, there's no need to lug around a heavy backpack. All your college eBooks are on the devices you carry regardless.
No need to visit your campus store or wait for your books to arrive in the mail. Your eTextbooks are available to you as soon as click the purchase button.
Save the trees! Producing print textbooks uses a lot of paper and energy. Do your part for the environment by going digital.
eTextbook readers have tools built in that help you learn better. You can take notes and highlights just like in a regular textbook and reference those annotations later when you study for exams.
