Bobcat Essentials opening online bookstore

Ohio University students now have a new way to purchase their course textbooks.

Bobcat Essentials (4th Floor, Baker University Center) recently expanded its on-campus services by opening an online bookstore with the help of MBS Direct, a strategic partner and nationally recognized textbook distributor.

Through bobcatessentials.ohio.edu, students can order new and used textbooks, digital textbooks and a wide-variety of supplemental materials. Textbook rental options and various OHIO apparel items are also available.

"The new online bookstore truly has something for everyone," Mohamed Ali, director of retail operations, said. "Students will enjoy the convenience of our ordering options, quick delivery and helpful customer service."

Bobcat Essentials is currently offering free shipping on all textbook orders (excludes rentals).
