What Are Digital Textbook Platforms?

Digital textbook platforms are solutions for accessing vital reading list content. Textbooks and courseware can be difficult for some students to access regularly, negatively impacting their academic performance. Platforms like BibliU are designed to help your students succeed by providing easy access to digital textbooks and content — while still providing a steady return on investment for your universities and library.

These digital platforms may include automated workflow capabilities, as well as centralised dashboards for purchasing. BibliU, for example, contains a purchasing portal with access to the entire bibliography, pricing, and licensing models for instant procurement and deployment. This makes it easy for you to choose, purchase, and deploy new titles quickly.

For students, digital textbook platforms make course materials more accessible. These textbooks are available for download via the platform, helping your students save money on spending for course materials. This can also translate to savings for your university. For example, you can save 30-50% on high usage titles with BibliU.
