The Winter 2019 #textbookbroke campaign ran January 21-25 in four University of Ottawa library locations: MRT, RGN, FTX, and CRX. Over 200 post-its were collected, with students indicating the amount of money they spent on their textbooks this term and leaving quite a few comments.
Many of these comments mentioned that exorbitant textbook prices led students to skip out on buying textbooks altogether or to resort to piracy as an alternative.
Do you have more to say about high textbook prices and their impact on your education? Join us on Wednesday, March 6, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at CRX 230 for a presentation and discussion with other students about this issue.

We wish to thank everybody who participated in the Winter 2019 edition of #textbookbroke and hope to see you on March 6!
