CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Campbellsville University has partnered with Akadémos to open a virtual bookstore.

“We are excited about the new partnership with Akadémos and the benefits that it will provide to our students,” Angela Russell, CU’s director of mailroom and retail operations, said. “Along with offering textbooks and other course materials at an affordable price, the virtual bookstore includes several features aimed at allowing us to best serve our students and provide them with the materials they need to succeed in the classroom.”

The virtual bookstore includes the following features:

  • An optimized website where orders can be placed in fewer than 10 minutes
  • A wide variety of textbook formats, including new, used, rental and e-textbooks.
  • Price match guarantee on new books
  • A Marketplace where third-party vendors and students can sell textbooks at discounted prices
  • Free economy shipping on select orders over $49 (excluding Marketplace)

Akadémos has provided students at over 170 schools with many low-cost textbook options through their innovative Virtual Bookstore, powered by TextbookX, which utilizes state-of-the-art technology to fully integrate with school systems.

Students can visit the website to order online and have course materials shipped to their homes or campus while digital course material access is emailed.
