Your course materials management partner for higher education.


Higher education – not higher costs.

Since founding the first online rental textbook company BookRenter, we’ve evolved to automating faculty adoptions and bringing down the cost of textbooks to an all-in-one solution that reduces out-of-pocket expenses for students. We’ve built the technology to manage it all – both print and digital content – so you can succeed in the changing educational landscape.



We ensure your students are prepared for success on day one.
