A Frustrating Day

Following up on yesterday's post, today I'm dealing with yet another digital vs print decision. We could purchase some bundled sets of online books in specific subjects (construction, fashion, criminal justice, etc.), which would give students access to some great titles, and you could access them at home. Unfortunately, the pricing for the online packages is very expensive--$3000 for 19 culinary arts books, for example. We'll probably end up passing on these sets due to their cost. I hope the cost for digital copies goes down, so we can afford more of them. (in Library insider)
