, rising tuitions, living expenses and onerous textbook fees, student developers were motivated to find creative ways to manage the accumulating student debt load.

WHAT IS AN ONLINE TEXTBOOK EXCHANGE SERVICE?
It is a web site that facilitates the direct exchange of post-secondary textbooks between students. Members may buy, sell or exchange their new and used textbooks without surcharges. There are NO membership fees for students wishing to access the "booksforschool.ca" web site and NO commission fees to buy or sell books.
"Maximized exposure for textbooks listed online, is key to helping students become aware of discounts available to them ," said Lawson Hennick, student press coordinator of the BooksForSchool.ca web site. "BooksForSchool.ca now allows students to print out a poster version of the textbooks they have available online which they can then circulate around their University or College campus."
BooksForSchool.ca matches younger students with older students and vice versa, to help facilitate the sale of textbooks. Web site tools automatically inform students by email when a required textbook becomes available.
BooksForSchool.ca is a completely free service for students who wish to buy, sell or trade textbooks thereby allowing a student to retain much more of the initial investment when selling their textbooks online.
Student developer Paul Levine points out, "our peers saved over $25,000 nation-wide last year using BooksForSchool.ca and this fact has made our efforts very rewarding. Watching the growth of BooksForSchool.ca last year was very exciting and we are projecting a $50,000 savings for our members in the upcoming school
