College students who are back to school can now read their campus’ newspapers on their Nook. Barnes & Noble’s Nook Media arm announced today that it will distribute digital newspapers from leading colleges and universities from across the U.S. through the Nook Newsstand.
The partnership includes publications from Harvard, Columbia, Louisiana State University, Northwestern University, University of Michigan and University of Texas at Austin. Nook users can buy monthly subscriptions to these newspapers from the digital newsstand and then read them on their device or through the Nook app.
The distribution comes through a deal with UWIRE. “Through NOOK’s exclusive partnership with UWIRE, we are providing a new and convenient way to stay connected with your favorite college or university,” stated Jonathan Shar, Vice President & General Manager, Emerging Content, NOOK Media LLC. “NOOK is now the only place that provides easy access to over 500 digital editions of college and university newspapers, delivering them to students, alumni, faculty, and sports fans, across all NOOK devices and NOOK reading apps.”
