Seven out of ten students say that they have not purchased a required text because of its price tag. In fact, The College Board, an organization that works to expand access to higher education, estimates a full-time undergraduate student at a public four-year university will pay $1,298 per year for books and supplies. So in order to fill students’ backpacks without emptying their wallets, K-State Libraries launched the Textbook Affordability Project.
