Textbook resellers and publishers make huge profits off textbook sales, while students are forced to pay $100s to use these textbooks for class. Even the used books are expensive. And every year, students purchase these textbooks.
We created taiLib to give students an alternative. On taiLib, you can create and browse listings of students - then purchase or borrow textbooks from other students directly. This way our money is exchanged within the student community rather than being funneled to textbook resellers and publishers.
So, keep your books! Sell them to other students on taiLib, or keep then longer and loan them instead. taiLib provides the infrastructure for connecting you with other students, leaving you in charge of your textbooks.
