Textbook rentals will give N.J. college students more options this fall

Starting this fall, students at many New Jersey colleges will have a third option: renting their books.
More than a dozen colleges and universities — including Rutgers, Montclair State, Fairleigh Dickinson, Drew and Union County College — are launching programs in their campus bookstores that will allow students to rent textbooks for one semester for less than half the cost of purchasing them new.
