Tips on Saving Money on Textbooks:

Other bookstores in the area, such as the Off Campus Bookstore and College Book Supply, may have new and/or used books. They may also have buy-back programs.

Electronic books may be available through companies like coursesmart.com. Contact your professor to ensure that this is an acceptable option. Carefully consider the terms (e.g., 180 day access, printing costs, no refund, no DVD, no buy-back, etc.) before purchase.

Your book may be available from an electronic subscription service through the Collier Library (e.g., Books24x7). Check with your professor.
