AUSTIN (September 1, 2013)—Austin’s historically black Huston-Tillotson University has closed its only campus bookstore and moved to sell books and course materials exclusively online.
The bookstore was closed in June and now, instead of stacks of books and long lines of students, there's simply an empty space in the student union where it used to be.
Over the summer, the university began an agreement with an online textbook provider that established a "virtual bookstore" for the campus that offers books by class and allows students clicking on a particular course to see a list of required books.
Also offered are costs to buy the books new and used, as well as rent them or buy them as e-books.
