WHAT ARE ETEXTBOOKS?
An eTextbook is a digital version of a printed textbook that you can download or access online. The eTextbook contains the same content as the print version and is organized in the same way. It typically includes the same images, graphs and charts.
Our eTextbook platform is Yuzu™. It lets you read eTextbooks, highlight, add margin notes and stickies, and flag important content with an easy-to-use interface. When it's time for exams, Yuzu helps you study more efficiently.
WHY ARE STUDENTS CHOOSING ETEXTBOOKS OVER PAPER TEXTBOOKS?
Easy - the new digital eTextbooks have many advantages over traditional paper textbooks:
- View Multimedia - eTextbooks can include videos and other multimedia content, and links to related websites, to make the learning experience richer and more engaging.
- Annotate Easily - You can highlight and add notes to eTextbooks without writing all over the textbook pages. Plus, your highlights and annotations can be easily revised or deleted.
- Lighten the Load - You can carry a virtually unlimited number of eTextbooks wherever you go( without breaking your back!).
- Read Anywhere - With course materials always at your fingertips, you can read and study whenever the opportunity comes.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NOOK STUDY AND YUZU?
Yuzu is the new eTextbook reading and study platform from Barnes & Noble. It offers more mobility than NOOK Study and a simple, elegant interface with updated features that students have said they appreciate and use the most.
Moving forward, Yuzu is replacing NOOK Study. We believe you will find Yuzu to be a superior way to learn and get the most from your college experience.
I OWN OR RENT NOOK STUDY ETEXTBOOKS. CAN I USE THEM WITH YUZU?
Yuzu and NOOK Study are not compatible applications so you cannot read and annotate your NOOK Study eTextbooks with Yuzu. You can continue to access your previously purchased eTextbooks within NOOK Study.
If you are currently renting NOOK Study eTextbooks, they will be available in your NOOK Study library until the end of the rental period.
WHAT DEVICES DOES YUZU SUPPORT?
The Yuzu iPad® app is compatible with iPad 2 and above with iOS7 or higher. (NOTE: iPad 3 and above is recommended). With the iPad app, you download eTextbooks from your personal digital library to your iPad so they can be read and annotated without an Internet connection.
The Yuzu web app lets you access your digital library with any internet-connected Windows computer using Internet Explorer 10 or 11, or any internet-connected Mac using Safari 6.1 or 7.
CAN THE YUZU IPAD APP AND WEB APP BE USED TOGETHER?
Yes. You can follow along in class on your iPad and pick up where you left off at any computer on campus or at home. Then, with one click, you can sync your highlights and notes.
CAN I RENT AN ETEXTBOOK AND GET ALL THE SAME FEATURES?
Yes. Yuzu provides rental options for eTextbooks. You can use all of the Yuzu markup tools on both purchased and rented eTextbooks.
HOW DO I PURCHASE ETEXTBOOKS?
Buying an eTextbook is just as easy as buying a paper one, and often faster!

Then, within minutes, read your eTextbooks online, or download them to your iPad using the free app available in the Apple App Store.
HOW DO I REDEEM MY ACCESS CODE?
