Nicole Carter Luthy is Director of Outreach and Engagement in the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement at The Ohio State University. During her career in education—which began as a classroom teacher—Nicole has led numerous state projects and worked extensively in e-learning, curriculum, and professional development.  Another school year is underway for many students across the country. In the past that meant students being assigned textbooks or if in college the student would have to purchase textbooks. But with advances in technology, many textbooks are now available in digital copy formats.
