BibliU Raises $10 Million to Scale Online Textbooks

The coronavirus outbreak has forced schools to double down on—and in some cases try for the first time—online education technologies, from digital science labs to virtual campus tours. But students at some colleges and universities still rely on print, which is a problem when bookstores and libraries have closed. As colleges seek to provide alternatives to print textbooks, one digital book provider, BibliU, has launched about 100 pilots globally since the pandemic started, says CEO David Sherwood. “Academic libraries have huge physical collections,” says Sherwood, 28. “The crisis has really brought to the forefront the issue with that approach and how remote learners and distance learners have been missing out on those resources.”
