Designed To Solve For


Students arrive on campus with nearly everything they need - except their textbooks.


High prices force many students to forgo purchasing textbooks, negatively affecting academic outcomes.


Financial aid for textbooks is based on a campuswide average; many students are left to cover significant remaining costs.
