Book rental delay

A plan to allow students to rent textbooks through the AVC Marauder Bookstore has been delayed due to late arrival of the software to operate the program.

Officials had hoped to launch the program in August after formalizing a deal with Nebraska Book Company to make available 15,000 textbook titles for rental to students.

Unfortunately, delivery of software for the program was delayed six weeks, not allowing enough time to make the system operational for the start of the fall semester, according to David Moyer, bookstore operations supervisor.

Moyer expects the program to be available later this year as a way to cut book costs for students.
