Booktopia continues to be a proud supporter of the EPAA and joins its celebration of excellence and innovation in educational publishing.
In 2022, Booktopia has engaged over 10,000 academic institutions across every level from early learning to tertiary education across Australia, providing dedicated services for students and academics, underpinning its position as Australia’s leading supplier of textbooks.
Following a review of the student experience and consultation with focus groups among the student community, Booktopia features a custom-built Textbook Finder with proprietary data supplied by universities, lecturers and publishers. This provides Australia’s most comprehensive guide to recommended textbooks for every subject, making life easier for students.
Booktopia has a team across the country which curates bespoke product recommendations, tailored towards the needs of each institution. The team has identified a number of trends in customers’ requests and order behaviours including:
- Graduation gifts – institutions are looking to provide more curated gifts for students as they enter the next phase of their lives with Booktopia seeing an increase of 50% of orders placed for this purpose in the past 12 months. Booktopia offers bulk discount options to customers seeking to reward their student community for their hard work.
- Monthly updates to school libraries have been a valuable tool to support school staff in their selection of books with new release titles for the following month which also includes titles which have teacher’s notes available.
Booktopia’s team operates nationwide, providing updates on new releases, budget-friendly options on books and ensuring information is readily available on products that every institution wants or needs at any given time. More information is available at www.booktopia.com.au.
