Meredith College and eCampus.com Partner to Increase Access to Affordable Course Materials Through Online Bookstore
Lexington, KY (PRUnderground) February 7th, 2023
Meredith College, located in Raleigh, NC, has announced eCampus.com as its official online bookstore beginning in Summer 2023. Meredith College is a private, historically women’s liberal arts college and is nationally ranked and recognized as “One of America’s Best Colleges” according to the Princeton Review. Meredith College selected eCampus.com as their official online bookstore solution to bring its students affordable and convenient online access to order their course materials.
By seamlessly integrating with previously existing platforms, eCampus.com’s online storefront will give students the opportunity to purchase or rent new and used textbooks online, as well as access to digital content and an expansive third party marketplace for items sold by individual sellers. eCampus.com will also create a customized ordering process for students to use when purchasing their textbooks through Single Sign-On (SSO). Students will be provided time and money saving options, such as free shipping to the campus store for convenient pickup or to the student residence. eCampus.com’s custom-branded online storefront and dedicated customer service will be available to students 24/7.
As an added convenience for students, eCampus will provide an iPad kiosk in the Meredith College campus store for on-demand ordering of course materials, access to their account, and live support. Faculty will enjoy access to a robust online adoption platform designed to streamline the course materials research and adoption process. Real-time data surrounding textbook affordability, format options, and historical purchasing behaviors will further assist faculty in selecting best-fit content in any format, including OER.
“It is an honor to be working hand in hand with Meredith College to bring an accessible online bookstore platform to their institution,” said Matt Montgomery, President and CEO of eCampus.com. “By offering the very best selection of low cost course materials, we look forward to supporting student preparedness for the Meredith College campus.”
“Meredith College chose eCampus as our online bookstore vendor because of the quality of their operation,” said Sarah Kibler, Assistant Provost of Meredith College. “We are looking forward to partnering with eCampus to provide our students with improved options for new and used textbooks, digital materials, and free shipping to our campus store.”
