Students of Ateneo de Davao University might not have to worry anymore when it comes to buying second hand books.

In a recent Facebook post by Royce Caballero of SAMAHAN’s Systems and Development Committee, he showed a blurred image that served as a preview or a teaser of SAMAHAN’s latest project for this semester, the Book Resource Online or abbreviated as BRO.

According to Mina Limbaga, one of the SAMAHAN staff that shared Caballero’s post, she indicated that BRO “. . . is the SAMAHAN’s book selling initiative that will make it easier and more convenient for students to buy and sell secondhand textbooks.”

Usually, students purchase and sell their books through Ateneans de Davao, a Facebook group exclusively for Ateneo de Davao’s students.

Students post the second hand textbooks they need while sellers, who are also students, try to meet their requests and demands or vice versa.

The sale of second hand textbooks are popular among students since purchasing new textbooks cost more compared to those that are second hand.

More details of the said resource are still vague as of the moment.
