Students can purchase used textbooks from the online bookstore Alibris. The company offers these books for sale or as a rental for the duration of the school semester.
Students can visit the website at Alibris.com and enter the ISBN numbers for each desired textbook. This identifying number is generally located on the back of the book, near the barcode. The website provides a list of available options, with the edition numbers and physical condition of each book.
Alibris delivers the books by mail. For book rentals, the company sends a reminder and mailing label near the end of the semester for easy return of the books.
