What we deliver
The widest range of titles on all the courses offered by the university.
For a number of courses we produce a customised textbook for students that brings together content from a number of our publishing partners.
We ensure that students always receive best value with Amazon matched prices and guaranteed buy-back.
More than books
We also stock a range of IT equipment, art materials, stationery and convenience items.
The better outcome
For our publishing partners, our managers spend time with the university faculty to create reading lists and to promote these title to students.
For students, we offer the best value and best price for their core textbooks.
More engaged faculty = More engaged students = A better outcome
