Our History

We have been intricately connected to the academic world and the college classroom from the start. Our founder is a former college professor who simply felt his students were paying too much for their textbooks. He made it his mission to remedy the situation and, after writing his own textbook, dedicated his efforts to producing quality, affordable textbooks for students nationwide. His mission was sustained under the name of BVT Publishing.

Our Managing Director, another former college instructor, joined him in his endeavor shortly thereafter. The goal was simple – further support students in their educational success by developing high-quality, affordable textbooks. Allowing students more affordable options fosters their success, rather than forcing them to make difficult decisions, such as dropping the class or dropping out, taking on additional debt or not purchasing the textbook and sacrificing their own learning and chance of success, just because they cannot afford a particular textbook.

Over the years, we have actively increased the ways in which we support students and their success in higher education. Our Top Hat edition provides the ultimate in active learning with a fully customizable format that has multimedia content, interactive assessments and premade exams. Our LAB BOOKPlus edition in an interactive web-based eBook that is fully integrated with BVTLab®. BVT Lab® offers supplemental student resources and provides the essential teaching, assessment and communication tools required for success. This supplemental support is also found in our TEXTBOOKPlus edition, and is packaged as a great value.

We also have a portion of our Company dedicated specifically to the area of student success. In line with our mission to support students in their educational success, we are actively developing a suite of products for such courses, including textbooks and a variety of in-class modules. We are continually adding to this content in order to expand our current library of modules to encompass all necessary topics, allowing us to support students in all necessary capacities.
