Physical Options

As a non-profit, the 49er Shops are dedicated to lowering the costs of course materials by acquiring cheaper formats from the traditional new book whenever available. These include sourcing as many used books as possible, working with vendors to make as many titles available as a rental, acquiring cheaper loose-leaf formats, and producing faculty course packs. Some classes may require bundles, which is a set of multiple books or a combination of a physical textbook along with a digital courseware product.
