E-Textbooks…An Option for Your course? Check Here!May 31st, 2012 | By richterh | Category: CAMPUS NEWS
Are you using e-textbooks for class? If so, you already know they are a less expensive option for students. Currently, the Lewis University Bookstore (Follett) uses a digital textbook service called CafeScribe. Digital textbooks can be purchased just like regular texts, but often at a savings of up to 60%. They can also still be returned if they no longer meet the requirements for the class. Digital textbooks are also “rentable” for 180 days and simply disappear from your account after the allotted time.
Textbooks for general education courses such as Intro to Human Communication, College Writing II, and Macro/Microeconomics are all available digitally through CafeScribe at the Lewis University Bookstore. For SPCE students, cost and convenience are definitely an important factor in purchasing textbooks. Why not give it a try? Find your textbooks here and see if they offer a digital option. Your book will be available to you on a PC, Mac, or most portable (web-enabled) devices such as the iPad or Android tablets.
If you currently use digital textbooks, we’d love to hear about your experiences!
