History of College Textbook Prices - Examining Past Practices and Emerging Models
It is well known that college textbook prices in the United States have skyrocketed for decades, at times outpacing even medical services and home prices. As a result, course material affordability and access has become an equity issue for a generation of students. However, in recent years the landscape has started to change, in part driven by the textbook industry’s shift toward the "Inclusive Access" model, which automatically bills students for digital textbooks. While these programs advertise many short term benefits, the industry’s legacy of rising prices makes it more important than ever to examine the long term implications.

Join us for this upcoming webcast on May 24th at 3 pm ET, as traces the history of how high textbook prices evolved, how the market is changing, and how higher education leaders can apply lessons from the past to the future.
