MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The WVU Student Government Association worked with state legislators to introduce a bill into the House of Delegates creating a temporary Virtual Library Study Commission.
“I would consider them partners in this,” said Delegate Joshua Higginbotham, R-Putnam, the lead sponsor of House Concurrent Resolution 41.
Higginbotham said right after he was elected in 2016, WVU SGA President Blake Humphrey contacted him about textbook affordability.
The commission, which would expire on June 30, 2019, would explore the possibilities of a virtual library in West Virginia, which is “an online repository of textbooks, open-source textbooks, that would allow for college student in our state to save hundreds of dollars every semester on textbook costs,”Higginbotham said.
