Textbooks from the USAO bookstore are available for rental in additional to the traditional purchase model. Improvements to the rental program include more savings versus the purchase price of the book and greater flexibility in the rental period.

While a range of improvements to grounds and dining facilities will greet students when they return Aug. 27 to the University of Science and Arts, a better textbook rental program just might prove the most popular.
