SANTA CLARA, California , February 14, 2011 (press release) – Chegg, the number one textbook rental company, and the Independent College Bookstore Association (ICBA), the only professional cooperative dedicated exclusively to institutional college stores, today announced a partnership to bring low cost textbook rentals to ICBA college bookstores across the United States.

The partnership enables independent college bookstores to deliver affordable textbook rentals with Chegg. As a benefit, Chegg will provide free ICBA membership for each store that partners with Chegg to provide a textbook rental solution. In addition, Chegg will provide marketing collateral and campaigns to participating ICBA bookstores. Chegg currently partners with ICBA bookstores at Bowling Green State University, Kennesaw State University, University of Arizona, and Villanova University.

"Our partnership with the ICBA helps Chegg expand our textbook rentals to college bookstores nationwide," said Nathan Schultz, Vice President of Content Management at Chegg. "The ICBA stores we currently work with have been real innovators sharing a vision of providing students with the resources they need to be successful while saving them both time and money as well as building affinity with their campus bookstore."

In addition to its current partnerships with more than 40 schools, Chegg's relationship with the ICBA is another step forward in bringing Chegg's rental solution to millions of students across the U.S., helping them save hundreds of dollars over the course of their college career.

"Our goal is to help independent bookstores operate successfully and provide the best options for college students through innovative retail programs," said Stacy Waymire, Executive Director of the ICBA. "Our partnership with Chegg brings the leading textbook rental option directly to students through institutional bookstores. Students are searching for affordable access to textbooks and their campus store is delivering solutions."
