The website of Follett's University Bookstore is a one store shop for students, teachers and parents looking for books from different schools in North America. Follet is a name synonymous with education and has been so for more than 140 years. In all its huge 140 years of service span (and still counting), the company has been at the forefront, taking care of all the textbook needs of students, making it easier for both teachers and students. The company as Follet Corporation was founded in 1873 by Charles M. Barnes when he opened a bookstore at his home in Illinois. The company was renamed Follett Corporation by the sons of CW Follet in 1957, who was initially a shareholder of the company and later purchased it in 1923. The website was launched in 1999. The business grew and in order to align the needs of its customers, formed three business units - Higher Education, Elementary and High Schools and Libraries. All the three units later formed together to merge as Follett's University Bookstore.

Follett's University Bookstore provides all kinds of digital content pertaining to the different curriculum taught at different schools. The company claims to have opened 1,600 virtual stores, and 1,200 local campus stores in North America alone. Follett's University ebook store does not sell just books, but several other accessories that a school going student would need, and lots more than that, including caps, school bags, office goods for adults, blankets, gift items and so on.The service of the store is impeccable.
