Comprehensive Offerings

Delivering Powerful and Affordable Options for Your Institution.

Course Materials

If you are looking to provide affordable and accessible supplies (e.g., lab kits) or rented, new and used course materials for your students, Follett can help.

 

Digital

Follett’s innovative digital solutions offer easy access across devices (computers, tablets, smartphones, etc.) and provide quick access to tools for searching, note taking and highlighting. In addition, Follett DiscoverTM Shelf is a digital solution that lets students easily access their products through the publisher content links within the learning management system (LMS).

Open Educational Resources (OER)

Lumen Learning is a pioneer in OER, offering high-quality, vetted content for as low as $25 per semester, and replaces expensive textbooks in high-enrollment courses.

Rental

Follett was the first to invent a textbook rental program in 2010. With more than 90K titles available, our rental program has become the largest in the nation, and has saved students more than $2.6 billion compared to the cost of buying new.

Custom Content

Follett offers custom-created content through XanEdu and Baker & Taylor’s Bookmasters. Both manage copyright clearances, printing and publisher services, so instructors can create custom content tailored specifically for their courses.

Endless Aisle

Discover Shelf automatically places the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI®) tool in the LMS for digital course materials, eliminating manual entry.

Accessibility Made Affordable

Our financial aid integration solutions make it easy for your students to access financial aid funds and track their purchase deductions.

We can provide centralized hosting and access to financial aid data for your institution, and our campus card integration lets your students use their campus card online. We integrate with a variety of campus cards, including Blackboard®, Heartland and many more.
