Campus Stores Canada Announcement (January 29, 2010)
To All CSC Members:
In September 2009, an announcement was released regarding a digital platform being developed for Canadian and American campus stores. You can read about the announcement from CCRA and NACS Media Solutions at http://tinyurl.com/ygy25x8.
Since this announcement the CSC has been actively working with the CCRA to make this digital platform available to its members. We are delighted to announce that an agreement has been reached and the first phase is now available to all CSC members. This phase will allow your store to provide free access to copyrighted Digital Study Versions of public domain books in ePub format free-of-charge. This will be a key first step in your efforts to retain market share with your students by being the source for free content. The digital platform can be accessed free of charge. As a result, there are no warranties, expressed or implied, and no technical support is being provided (and it is expected that none will be needed for the implementation of this phase).
Individual stores can sign up at:http://www.campusebookstore.com/Booksellers/Default.aspx
Or, stores can place this link on their site: http://www.campusebookstore.com
This announcement will be posted on CSC’s blog as well, and members can post questions using the Comment feature.
