EMERYVILLE, CA—August 31, 2010— Alibris, the world's most advanced online media marketplace provider for sellers of new and used books, and CampusBookRentals.com, the pioneering textbook rental company, announced the launch of their partnership today.

The integration gives customers access to 100 million items—including new and used books and textbooks—offered for sale by the Alibris network of independent sellers.

"We're all excited about this partnership with Alibris.
