Packaged Reading

The University continues with its high-tech trek. A new online service available through the bookstore allows faculty to customize their course reading material, which students then download on their computers, saving both time and money. The service is known as Digital Coursepacks.

Rather than requiring students to purchase an entire book when only a few chapters are needed, for example, a professor can now choose only the chapters he wishes to include in the package.

Or, rather than copying and paying individually for research articles, official documents and other educational materials, they are simply bundled into one big package. Students pay to download the material rather than buying books.
