We believe textbooks should be a gateway, not a luxury.

Textbooks can be out of reach for many students. Those who can't afford new books do the best they can with old or out-of-print editions, while others may have to opt for none at all. But why?

Simply put, textbooks cost too much.

IU's eTexts initiative is a direct response to this issue. We believe affordable, accessible content should be available to all students.

The university's direct partnerships with a growing number of publishers have helped IU eTexts become a cost-effective alternative that aids student success and provides faculty with a powerful instructional tool.
