Reference students will inevitably study Publishing, and in doing so need to obtain Publishing textbooks. But students of Publishing often spend far too much money every semester purchasing Publishing textbooks. Publishing books can be very expensive when you buy new textbooks, while a rented textbook can be half the price or less. For example, a rental copy of either Writing for Magazines: A Beginner's Guide, U. S. Government Printing Office Style Manual: An Official Guide to the Form and Style of Federal Government Printing, 2008 (Hardcover), or How to Write for Magazines: Consumers, Trade and Web can be 75% less than what you might pay in a college bookstore.

If you wanted to rent What Editors Want: An Author's Guide to Scientific Journal Publishing (Chicago Guides to Writing, Editing, and Publishing), the best way would be to find the ISBN number (in this case, ISBN9780072864915) from your Publishing class guide and search for it on Whether you’re studying Authorship, Bibliographies & Indexes, or any other subject within Publishing, renting textbooks is the way to go.
