Muscling down college textbook costs
Back behind the cellphones for sale, away from the lines, behind the tight-tight shirts and the short-short shorts with "ASU" emblazoned in attention-grabbing places, is the ASU Bookstore's reason for existence.
For many students, those books might as well be vacuum cleaners, sucking money out of their pockets.
The University of Phoenix is trying to change that.
The Phoenix-based online and distance university is using its financial muscle to push publishers to provide sections of textbooks for its students.
Since 2001, more than 95 percent of texts for classes have gone online.
University of Phoenix officials say that it saves their students about $50 a course.
Other universities are exploring digitizing books, but in Arizona, it is hit and miss.
