BNED, Wiley to provide students with more access to affordable course materials

Barnes & Noble Education Inc. and Wiley announced Tuesday they plan to bring wider access to affordable, digital course materials to campuses nationwide in the form of a new partnership.

“Wiley has been a close partner for many years, and we look forward to expanding our relationship to benefit millions of students,” Ann Fraley, vice president, campus solutions, Barnes & Noble College, said.

Wiley, a research and education provider, said its digital content will be made available through inclusive access models offered on campuses served by Basking Ridge-based BNED through its Barnes & Noble College and MBS Textbook Exchange subsidiaries.

“By offering Wiley’s digital content through our First Day inclusive access model, we will ensure wider access to affordable course materials at the more than 1,400 campuses served by Barnes & Noble College and MBS nationwide,” Fraley said.

“Wiley understands the financial burden felt by students and we are committed to ensuring they have the materials needed to maximize their success and learning outcomes,” Alan Pavese, vice president, pricing and commercial models, Wiley, said. “Partnering with Barnes & Noble Education allows us to provide more students with the affordable course materials they need.”
