Booktracks was needed to replace the previous paper-and-pencil method of tracking textbooks.

Textbook Coordinator Bob Lipinski shared the below comment with local news reporters: "We have actually cut, probably 250 thousand dollars out of the budget for textbooks. It's actually more if you compound that over a few years."
