Just passing a long a couple of Web site links that Todd Digby, textbook liaison for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, offered Friday to student leaders:
The Student PIRGs (student Public Interest Research Group) textbooks site is nice because it focuses on the issues of affordable textbooks, plus it has a wealth of resources that students and student government can use on their own campuses. I think our site is still growing and should continue to grow. I also like these sites because there is a focus on Open Textbooks.
Save money with these resources -- and check out what other MnSCU campuses are doing
