Borders Opens New Marketplace for Textbooks

borders-textbook-marketplaceIt seems like the number of places students can buy textbooks grows everyday. The popular bookseller Borders launched its online “Borders Textbook Marketplace” yesterday, which flaunts 1.4 million titles and savings of up to 90 percent.

The Textbook Marketplace is the product of a partnership between Borders and online textbook source Alibris. Books for all educational levels—elementary school, middle school, high school and college—will be for sale. Other titles frequently used in classrooms are also available, as are education-related books, like advice books for choosing a college and homeschooling resources. Students will also be able to use the platform to resell books.

The new marketplace does not have a rental service, unlike Chegg.com and Barnes & Noble. Textbook rentals look like they will be the big upcoming trend for students who want to save money, so it’s surprising that Borders hasn’t jumped on board. Also yet to be seen is whether or not digital textbooks will be available through the service.
