Gone are the days of studying amidst piles of textbooks, notebooks, pens, papers and countless other instruments to aid the organization and learning process. Technology today has given students access to an entire world at their fingertips – and we’re helping them make the most of it.

Barnes & Noble’s deep understanding of what students want and need, combined with an unending commitment to innovation, led them to develop NOOK Study™ – a groundbreaking eTextbook reader and study platform that enables students to manage all their digital content (eTextbooks, class source materials, even their own notes) and study smarter using the computing device they use most – their own laptops and computers.

Provides Superior eReading Experience

  • Features full-color illustrations and photos with look, layout and page numbers identical to print textbooks
  • Opens multiple textbooks simultaneously for easier cross reference and review
  • Enables users to easily highlight and tag text, take notes and add links to web content

Enhances Student & Faculty Academic Success

  • Organize course textbooks, syllabi, handouts and lecture notes on a single platform
  • Create notes and links to classroom materials and specific pages or passages in eTextbooks
  • Search across all digital content housed in NOOK Study, including the entire text of a book, notes and instructor handouts

Saves Students Money

  • Saves students up to 60% off the cost of a new printed textbook
  • Provides access to the largest eBook library available (2 million titles and growing)
  • Easy to purchase books (digital and print) from campus bookstore website with one click

NOOK Study also powers your Learning Management System (LMS), easily integrating with leading systems such as Blackboard Learn, Moodle, Sakai and Desire2Learn. And for those who aren’t sure they’re ready to go digital, NOOK Study offers a free seven-day trial of many eTextbooks so students can experience the benefits firsthand before purchasing.

Designed with input from students and faculty, NOOK Study features a powerful set of study and organization tools that greatly enhance the teaching and learning experience.
