Barnes & Noble innovates multi-channel textbook rental program

Students have a new ally in the war against rising textbook prices and endless new editions with last month’s arrival of Barnes & Noble’s new textbook rental program.

This new service allows college students who attend colleges that have Barnes & Noble stores on campus to order their books online and pick them up at school.

According to the Barnes & Noble Web site, the company works side-by-side with college campus bookstores across the county to build strategies to ensure that each respective bookstore meets the needs of its campus community.

While City College is not a participating campus, attending students can still order books and have them shipped to their homes within just a few days.

“I would have saved so much money if I had known this service was available,” said Melody Shumacher, a freshman art major.

The program originally started as an experiment with three of Barnes & Noble’s 636 campus bookstores. There was such a positive response from students that the company expanded the idea to 25 of its stores, and there is no plan to slow expansion.

Barnes & Noble, along with other growing rental programs, says it seeks to persuade students to look beyond the conventional buying and reselling of textbooks, and to save over 50 percent with its new system.

“This semester I only paid $60,” said music major Alex Castanza. “But last semester [they] cost over $300.”

Most City College students who were informally asked about textbook rentals by the Express said that they will definitely rent textbooks through Barnes & Noble’s new multi-channel rental program or another textbook rental site next semester, as opposed to buying expensive books with the hope of reselling.
