What is UOGTextbooks.com?
UOGTextbooks.com is a used textbook sharing platform that
enables University of Guelph students to both post their used
textbooks for sale and also search for textbooks that they
require for the upcoming semester. UOGTextbooks.com allows for buyers to
search for textbooks by course code and allows sellers to post
their textbooks by simply entering the ISBN number.
Why was UOGTextbooks.com developed?
UOGTextbooks.com was developed as a final project for the
course CIS*3210 in the Fall semester of 2012
to address the fact that there is currently no
focused or efficient alternative for students to come together
and assist one another in sharing textbooks. As students
ourselves, we fully understood that textbook prices are
outrageously high and that university buyback rates are less
than ideal (to say the least). This is merely an attempt to
alleviate this in a small way.
