This initiative is going to spread awareness not just for faculty, but for students as well. Butler also explained that many students do not know that options like renting textbooks are available through websites, as well as at the SSU bookstore. “I think this is a really good way to raise awareness about cheaper textbooks to professors. I am tired of having to pay so much for a book that I don’t even use that often during the semester,” said junior Scott Alexander. Professors will hopefully become more aware of not only cheaper textbooks, but also other methods to buying textbooks such as e-books and putting copies of books on reserve at the library, according to Butler. “Reserve library books are going to soon be going to e-serves. As electronic textbooks become available, select chapters will be available in an online version,” said Butler.
