Online book purchasing reigns; traditional textbooks stand strong against e-books

The first week back on campus is hectic, so students purchasing their books take a no-fuss approach to this task: Most students opt to avoid the lines by buying or renting online.

The next highest amount of students polled buy or rent from the University Bookstore, while a handful of people will track down their required reading from the library or OhioLINK. Somewhat surprisingly, only a very small number (placing last in our poll) have moved toward e-books, showing the traditional textbook format is firmly holding its ground.
