Barnes & Noble on Tuesday announced a new Web-based textbook rental service as well as Nook Study, a software download for college students that lets them access class materials on a PC or Mac.
Textbook rental will be available on BN.com/textbooks, and students can borrow class materials for 60, 90, or 130 days, with the option to extend the rental for up to 125 days or purchase the book. Books can be returned free with Barnes & Noble-provided UPS shipping labels.
Barnes & Noble promised savings of up to 60 percent. The textbook “Database Management Systems,” for example, retails on BN.com for $141.78, but students can rent it for 60 days at $67.52, for 90 days at $72.34, or 130 days at $80.38.
If the book is not returned on time, Barnes & Noble will automatically add a 15-day extension to a rental. After that, renters will be charged for the book. If the book is returned in an unusable state – excessive highlighting or writing, missing pages, or a damaged spine or cover – Barnes & Noble will charge the renter to replace the book.
There is a 21-day return policy, whereby Barnes & Noble will issue a full refund, minus shipping.
