White Paper: CFO Survey on Textbook Delivery & Bookstore Services

Textbook delivery and bookstore services have become a prominent issue for college and university CFOs, likely due in part to increasing attention to the rising cost of textbooks from students, their families, accreditation committees, and state governments.

To better understand the scope of this issue, we are excited to release the results of our 2015 College CFO Survey on Textbook Delivery and Bookstore Services in this exclusive report.

Highlights of the survey include CFOs reporting that:

  • Students are increasingly turning away from campus-based bookstores in favor of third-party providers (93% confirmed this trend)

  • Access to high-quality, low-cost textbooks is the most important service institutions can provide regarding the sale of textbooks
  • 96% stated that textbook costs are impacting student retention and persistence 

  • Nearly all respondents indicated that textbook sales have been flat or down over the past three years

  • Plus, much more
