Our mission is to provide the most cost effective course materials to support learning and accommodate students’ varied economic circumstances and electronic capabilities.
The transition from print to digital does not eliminate the value of the traditional printed used textbook. Used textbooks are a fundamental part of the campus store course material program, and TBC’s specialty! Used textbook sales are 41% of our total textbook sales.
Students have never been happy about the price of textbooks. Historically they made their purchase decisions based on in-class usage. Now, price has become the deciding factor. With used textbooks becoming more and more difficult to acquire, and publishers undermining the used textbook market, we continue to maintain a highly sought after used textbook inventory. The pursuit of a limited quantity of high-demand books is a full-time, year-round, day-in day-out commitment. Our unprecedented used textbook success takes a team of committed people, a corporate commitment to training, and excellent faculty relations. Our unrivaled track record offers an unmatched financial advantage to our student customers.
As one of the largest suppliers of used textbooks in the U.S., we offer our customers priority access to over 250,000 used textbook titles.
Saving money through textbook rental, priced to guarantee maximum savings, is one of the most sought after value for students today. For many students, textbook rental makes their education affordable.
Our rental program has seen double-digit growth in the past three years. Students saved over $1.8 million dollars last year by renting instead of purchasing course materials. Our rental program can save students up to 83% compared to the new book price.
TBC’s rental program brings the best of market share retention, and great customer service to the student consumer. OnCourse technology allows students to combine rental transactions with purchases. Repeat rental transactions are a breeze with our customer data program.
OnCourse digital technology supports all digital formats, access codes, online codes and other electronic materials to satisfy price, portability, and learning content demands.
Today’s robust digital learning landscape is designed to meet the demand for affordability and portability. OnCourse satisfies their price and mobility requirements and provides students a side-by-side comparison of all available formats and prices for their required materials; new, used, rental, and digital.
Our partnerships with digital publishers and distributors such as RedShelf and VitalSource allow students to download directly to their electronic devices. eBooks are mobile optimized for the best reading experience. Students can access eBooks on any web–enabled device, including tablets and smart phones. Digital content can be read online or offline, enabling students to read digital material on their device without Internet connectivity.
