New Torrent Library for Students

In a week a new college year will start, which means that students all over the world must dig deep into their pockets to buy the necessary textbooks, which generally do not come cheap. Nevertheless, the situation seems to change with a torrent administrator deciding to educate people regardless of the deepness of the students’ pockets.

Everyone knows the scale of students struggle to get a job to be able to pay for college. A study, carried out by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, revealed that prices on study books have increased 4 times the rate of inflation within the last two decades.

The purpose of the new torrent tracker LibraryPirate, launched last year, is to help students by offering free study books from different domains. The mission of the site is to revolutionize the digital e-textbook industry. The site operators believe that real-world business rules should not be applied to pricing of study books. Considering the annual updates making the previous version of textbook obsolete and its 6% annual price increase, the textbook market offers only dictated choice. According to other researches, the average student spends around $1000 on textbooks annually, which constitutes 26% of their yearly tuition. Meanwhile, the book publishers defend their price uplift with increased expenses in updating the textbook content, which are passed along to students.

Updating is quite a controversial issue: although it is important to keep information current, most of the subjects do not change much – for example, Calculus, which was invented 300 years ago and remains the same, so it is unclear why new editions of study books are released like clockwork.

The situation on the education market made LibraryPirate’s operators to try and put an end to this reign. They have created what they refer to as an open access movement. They believe that people having access to e-textbook resources should share the knowledge openly with the others. However, for some reason the majority of universities do not use open source study books at the moment, with professors still demanding that students spend hundreds of dollars on textbooks. LibraryPirate operators promised to meet the demands of this task by making all books available for everyone for free. The site has already a thousand textbooks indexed and the number continues growing.
