Cool Tool | Chegg Goes Digital

Students heading back to college and purchasing their books may have a slightly lighter load to carry: textbook rental giant Chegg is going digital, and will be steadily rolling e-textbooks on its platform offering millions of both print books and e-textbooks to students by the end of the year. They’ve also partnered with a number of publishers to offer e-textbooks to its students (e.g., Cengage Learning, Elsevier, F.A. Davis, Macmillan, McFarland, McGraw-Hill, Oxford University Press, Rowman & Littlefield, Taylor and Francis, and Wiley). Founded in 2007, Chegg is one of the largest textbook rental giants for college students. Millions of students across 7,000 campuses use Chegg. Competitors include BookRenter, CampusBookRentals, and eCampus, among others. Students will be able to download HTML5 formatted, browser-based e-textbooks on any device.
