UM faculty and students will be able to download texts from more than a dozen academic disciplines including Psychology, Sociology, Music, and Literary Studies. Texts are currently available for rent for between 40 and 75% off the list price, depending on the length of rental. More books may become available in the near future pending customer response. While the service is only available to U of M students and faculty, its a sure sign for all that the e-books are making their way to the mainstream!
