The Saint Louis University Barnes & Noble Bookstore announced that it has lowered prices on hundreds of textbooks.
"We understand that the high costs of education can be difficult for students and their families," said Debbe Schneider, bookstore manager. "That's why we've lowered the prices on many of our most popular textbook titles to help ensure students have access to the course materials they need."
The campus bookstore also provides textbooks in a variety of formats-new, used, digital, rental, loose-leaf or custom books-to help students save more money.
Students can save 25 percent when purchasing a used textbook or more than 50 percent by opting for textbook rentals. Rentals are available either online or in the bookstore and can be paid using cash, credit or SLU student billing.
In addition to offering savings of up to 60 percent over new printed books, Barnes & Noble's free Nook StudyTM application serves up eTextbooks in an engaging format that enhances the overall learning experience.
Students with books that faculty plan to reuse next semester will be eligible for a 50 percent cash payout, up to needed inventories.
