More textbook options for your students

New books

Save up to 12.5% off publishers' net prices on new textbooks. With MBS you'll save time and money by ordering new and used from one source.

Used books

Generate traffic and sales with a robust used book program, something students expect from their college store. MBS has one of the largest inventories of used books in the industry so you can meet demand.


Offer eBooks alongside print in-store or online. Giving students a cost-saving digital alternative, your store can retain current sales and even recover lost sales. MBS adds thousands of downloadable titles to the traditional new and used print mix.

Rental solutions

With the most competitive rental guarantee (rebate) program in the industry, it's easier than ever to enhance the depth and breadth of your program and, ultimately, become more competitive.
