Digital Content, eTextbooks & eBooks
The BGSU Bookstores offer many eBook options and more digital course materials are added every day. Students can choose from free public domain titles and digital textbook licenses, sold in-store, through the BGSU Choose textbook price comparison site, or can be accessed through one of the two tabs on this page. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us.
The Bookstore has been involved with providing digital content since 2005 when it was one of the first ten university bookstores nationally to sell eTextbooks. Although eTextbooks used for courses have not taken off as quickly as traditional eBooks downloaded to an Amazon Kindle or Apple iPad, that early experience has evolved into the robust program offering today. Affiliate relationships for digital content include Amazon, Inkling, Campus eBookstore, open source publisher Flat World Knowledge, legacy eTextbook CourseSmart – “the world’s largest provider of digital course materials”, and others.
In addition, the Ziggabyte technology store sells a wide assortment of tablets and eReaders including the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble Nook, the Samsung Galaxy, and of course, the ubiquitous Apple iPad. As new eReader hardware and software options emerge, Ziggabyte and the BGSU Bookstore will continue to innovate and keep the BGSU Community on the cutting edge.
