In response to a link on Instapundit about Robert Morris University making textbooks available in their library, we mentioned our library search for any book.

Glenn graciously mentioned Direct Textbook on his site, and we got to feel the surge of the 'Instalanche' of traffic.

If you don't attend Robert Morris University, you can still look for your textbooks in a library near you, or see if you can get them through inter-library exchange. On any price page you can click on 'Find in Library' to check.



Thanks again to Glenn, and we hope that this might help you save money on your textbooks this term.
