What is Sidewalk?

The University of Richmond Spidershop is proud to partner with software company Sidewalk to provide students with new options to attain course materials.

Sidewalk provides a platform to display open market conditions, enabling faculty to determine if what a publisher recommends is indeed the optimal choice. Sidewalk also provides students a lens into faculty’s selection process so they can view price-sensitive alternatives to the newest edition of a textbook.

Features include:

  • Full transparency into content decisions between faculty, students, and stores - resulting in more content to choose from, and reduced prices for students.
  • Seamless and simple communication between stores and faculty
  • Web module that hooks into the Student Information System and Store POS
  • Content and adoption transparency among faculty members across campus
  • Easily accessible content decision histories between faculty and stores
