Vancouver, BC – Jan 17, 2012: LocAZu, the student network, announced today a key partnership with Bookboon, the world’s fastest growing ebooks publisher headquartered in London. The partnership includes the implementation of a module on the LocAZu.com website where students can download free etextbooks.
LocAZu will be able to offer yet another essential tool and free service to university students, fulfilling its dedication to “helping students save money, and making their lives easier”.
Bookboon, being located in Europe, will now have the opportunity to expand its reach to North American college students via LocAZu.
“Education is about sharing knowledge. And we enable students to share while cutting down their cost of education.” states Dawn Sheirzad, the company founder. “Our focus is the university and college students. Our objective is to help them connect, save, study smart. If we can bring them free etextbooks, then we’re meeting our objectives.”
Bookboon pays college professors for writing textbooks from its in-book advertising revenue. This has been a win-win design leading to 25 million annual downloads primarily in Europe, which is now expected to expand in North America.
LocAZu is the student network connecting college students to each other, and the A to Z of what they need to get through school from textbooks to parties. LocAZu is free for students, local, and campus-based. It enables students to trade textbooks, share study materials, share course / prof / university reviews and ratings, post/find events, and get rewards for their contributions all from one convenient site.
Bookboon is the fastest growing eBook publisher in the World. Established in 1988 and originating in Denmark, it now has current headquarters in London as well as offices in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Amsterdam, and Munich. It offers ebooks in three separate categories: textbooks, business, and travelguides. Through advertising it’s able to offer free ebooks, and currently boasts 25 million downloads per year.
