Early Faculty Adoptions

We provide your campus with technology that automates discovery and adoptions start to finish.

Easy Rental Buyback

We believe in efficiencies. Providing you with tools to keep your inventory local is key.

Low-Cost Inventory

We lower your cost of textbook supply, physical or digital, by sourcing from a vast supply network.

No-Risk Textbook Rentals

We’re experts in rental – the most efficient way to provide affordable textbooks to students.

Since founding the first online rental textbook company BookRenter, we’ve evolved from renting textbooks to technology that automates faculty adoptions and brings down the cost of textbook supply. We’re building a technology engine that will manage all kinds of content – physical and digital – and help you succeed in the changing educational landscape.

We’ve learned a lot inventing textbook rentals.


Easy textbook commerce.

Students want to buy on their terms – anytime, anywhere. That’s why our flexible rental capabilities allow you to support textbook rentals in-store, online, or on any mobile device. Plus, the best part is they’ll save over 60% off the retail price of the textbook doing it.
