A new partnership between PC and Akademos, an online bookstore, means more options and cost savings for students.
“I am excited about the new partnership between PC and Akademos for our online bookstore,” said PC Provost Dr. Don Raber. “I believe students will value the variety of formats, delivery options, and flexibility on buyback that Akademos provides, and I am confident faculty will appreciate the ability to create custom course packs, to add ancillaries, and to have a streamlined portal for placing and reviewing orders for materials.”
In 1999 a university professor founded Akademos after realizing that the college textbook-buying process hindered what students learned in their classes. Many students couldn’t afford the books they needed and didn’t have any to take to class. Akademos helps alleviate this problem by providing new, used, rental and digital textbooks and course materials.
In order to support the College’s educational mission and accommodate student preferences, PC is making sure it provides students new choices in delivering different options for students to be successful.
