A new online service, RentBack, launched today targeted towards helping scholars earn money by hiring out their textbooks to other scholars.

The new service–run by CampusBookRentals, an internet supplier of varsity textbook rentals based in Provo Utah–lets users hire out their books to other scholars, receiving money, check, or credit toward future rentals.  CampusBookRentals expounded that scholars can use the service to hire out their books to other scholars, handled by CampusBookRentals, which may pay scholars each time their books are leased out and in circulation.  CampusBookRentals didn’t say what quantity of the rental charge will return to scholars, but did say those scholars may continue to receive payments for so long as those titles are in heavy demand.
