Learning materials publisher FlatWorld is now offering Flatworld Institutional, a textbook subscription service that allows universities and departments to tailor the textbook selection to students' specific needs. Rather than pay for access to FlatWorld's entire catalog, institutions can subscribe to a customized set of textbooks priced at a fixed rate per student and text.

"For the last two years, FlatWorld has offered a subscription solution that gives access to our entire catalog. While many larger universities appreciated this unlimited option, we also received feedback from universities big and small that they wanted the option to subscribe to select textbooks, as opposed to paying for an 'unlimited' subscription that included many textbooks their students didn't need," explained Alastair Adam, co-CEO of FlatWorld, in a statement. "We piloted a customizable subscription solution in 2018, and are thrilled to offer FlatWorld Institutional to universities across the U.S. and Canada in 2019."

In addition to online and downloadable textbooks, FlatWorld's subscription includes test banks, test generators, PowerPoint slides, lectures notes and instructor manuals. Most textbooks also include the FlatWorld Homework System. Print companion textbooks are available for an additional charge of $10 to $25.
