ASU Bookstore adds free e-book links to website
Here is an example of a college store that is providing its customers with information about how to obtain free e-books. ASU Bookstore added a page to their website that includes a list of free e-book links and descriptions of the titles and formats offered. The ASU Bookstore, like others, made this information available as a service to students as part of an effort to contribute to lowering textbook costs where possible.
