Campus bookstores hope to turn their websites into e-book portals

September 28, 2009

The National Association of College Stores and the Canadian Campus Retail Associates Inc. have pooled their resources to develop a shared e-book-distribution operation. The project will bring a library of downloadable e-books to participating college and university stores.

Each campus store can integrate it into its own website, to let students buy and download an electronic text, similar to the way other online retailers do.

So far, the collection is small, just about 200 titles. However, this first group of e-books is free to students.
