SAGE Publishing and Chegg announce textbook rental partnership
SAGE Publishing, an independent publisher of first-rate learning material created in partnership with expert authors, and Chegg, the Smarter Way to Student™, today announce a partnership to provide students with a new affordable option for accessing SAGE texts. Through this partnership, SAGE will provide Chegg with a selection of its print textbooks for students to rent through Chegg’s online connected learning platform beginning spring 2018.
“By partnering with SAGE, we can continue to deliver overwhelming value to students on more textbook options,” said Nathan Schultz, Chief Learning Officer, Chegg. “By offering more affordable options, we aim to take down some of the barriers students face as they enter and get through school and prepare for their careers”.
SAGE publishes textbooks across the wide spectrum of the social and behavioral sciences for both lower- and upper-level undergraduate courses as well as graduate and post-graduate students. While SAGE has always been dedicated to competitive textbook pricing, with the new partnership, SAGE textbooks will be available to students to rent for as low as $22 per print textbook per semester.
“Because of our commitment to expert authorship, rigorous research, and diverse voices, we believe in the power of our textbooks to best educate students and to meet the teaching goals of instructors,” commented David Horwitz, Vice President of Sales at SAGE Publishing. “We are proud to be working closely with an innovative partner like Chegg to improve textbook affordability for students and to expand access to these high-quality resources.”
