Shouldering the heavy burden of textbooks - Jordan Williams & Asia Randolph, W&M Libraries

William & Mary Libraries has launched a Textbook Affordability Initiative on campus to address the rising costs of textbooks.  “The cost of textbooks has increased more than 400 percent in the last 20 years,” said Asia Randolph, W&M Libraries graduate assistant.  “It’s rising at a much faster rate than inflation. For students who have to buy 4, 5 or 6 textbooks each semester – sometimes more – it becomes too much for their budgets to handle.”
