Even in the digital era, accessing specialized books is complicated due to their high costs or lack of availability both in bookstores and digital platforms. Unfortunately, this forces thousands of college students to resort to piracy, (which helps them avoid getting a full book from which they only need one chapter) or simply because they cannot afford them. This complicates the access to education for millions of people worldwide. Is there a way to access specialized books legally and at a low cost?


  • 7 out of every 10 college students consider books an expensive asset.
  • 73% prefer to access books instead of buying them.
  • 70% don’t buy new books.
  • 35% illegally download books or buy photocopies.
  • It’s estimated that the losses due to piracy add up to 200,000 euros.
