Universities test buying e-books in bulk
Big Ten campuses in Wisconsin and Minnesota, along with four other major universities, will experiment with buying electronic textbooks in bulk.

The universities will pool their buying power and negotiate discounted prices from the textbook companies. Educators say it could help reduce the high cost of textbooks and bring e-textbooks into the mainstream.
