7 Strategies for Textbook Affordability Infographic

The continuing rise in textbook prices has become a major issue in higher education: according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), textbook prices have risen at an average rate of six percent per year between 2002 and 2012. This is an astonishing rate – considering consumer prices in general rose only two percent over the same time period – and is causing higher education faculty, administrators, and students to look for ways to make textbooks more affordable.

In this infographic, Hanover Research examines textbook affordability in higher education and reveals a variety of strategies used by colleges and universities to mitigate the financial burden by textbook purchases on students.
