MMC to Roll Out New Digital Bookstore in January 2020

Beginning January 2020, Akademos, a leader in online bookstore solutions, will manage the first Marymount Manhattan College digital bookstore.

MMC’s partnership with Akademos will enable a seamless process for faculty to post and order textbooks and course materials and will give students expanded access to a vast selection of low-cost textbooks through a personalized online ordering experience. By leveraging Akademos’ full-service platform, the College will benefit from a more transparent, convenient, and cost-effective solution to manage course materials and measure usage.

“At Marymount Manhattan College, we are committed to the success of our students, and one important way to help them succeed is by addressing textbook affordability,” says Sharon Meagher, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty. “Utilizing a centralized, online platform that expands selection and lowers costs is an innovative step forward that allows our students easy access to affordable textbooks.” 

The College’s faculty and administrators are currently preparing for the roll out, and students will gain access to the platform during the fall Advisement period. Stay tuned for more information!
