Dec. 22, Santa Clara, Calif. – When their previous textbook vendor went out of business, Saint Lawrence Academy turned to MBS Direct for textbook fulfillment after hearing about the success other schools in the area had had with the company.The excellent communication between MBS Direct’s Account Management and Saint Lawrence was perhaps the biggest reason why Saint Lawrence was able to get its Online Bookstore up and running so quickly. MBS Direct provides students with round the clock customer service, as well as a Virtual Bookstore packed with features designed to guarantee students get affordable course materials they need, when they need them. These features include:

Technology is a vital part of the curriculum at Saint Lawrence, and by partnering with MBS Direct, the school now has access to an expansive digital catalog and will be able to increase the amount of digital titles adopted by faculty.
