Substantial savings can be realized off the new book price when choosing an eBook over a new book, The amount varies by publisher. There is no buyback option on an eBook.  If the eBook option is available, we offer it as an option to our students to purchase in store, or online.   The bookstore actively reviews new digital delivery systems for possible use in our store to provide students with affordable options.

The BGSU Bookstores want to help lower the high cost of course materials for BGSU students and some book titles are available as free electronic editions.
