The university’s bookstore, Barnes & Noble 教育, Inc., is teaming up with digital textbook provider VitalSource and leading publishers to help ensure that MSU students are equipped to learn, wherever they are, during the six weeks remaining in the academic year.
“We are most appreciative of Barnes & Noble for providing these resources to our students during this unprecedented disruption,” said David Shaw, MSU’s provost and executive vice president. “Thanks to the support of Barnes & Noble, our faculty and staff, and so many others in the Mississippi State family, we are very confident that our students will be able to finish the semester successfully, earn full credit for their classes, and continue to make academic progress toward earning their degree.”
MSU’s Vice 主席 for 学生事务 Regina Hyatt, said, “We are grateful for our partnership with Barnes & Noble 教育 for bringing these resources to our students. We are doing all we can to ensure students have the resources they need to be successful in their online instruction environment, and this is another tool students can use. I continue to be so inspired by the resilience of our community in responding to the COVID-19 crisis and appreciate our partners, like Barnes & Noble, who are willing to present solutions for our needs.”

Any students with physical rental books from Barnes & Noble at MSU will be given a free UPS label to ship books back to the bookstore at the semester’s end, and the bookstore will extend the grace period as long as needed. These labels will be emailed directly to every student with outstanding rental books.
Barnes & Noble at MSU also is providing free shipping for all items on its website to ensure students can get what they need. Buyback periods will be extended once students return to campus so they can continue to sell books back.
