    Don’t want to be chained to this semester’s textbooks? Check out Bookswim. It’s like Netflix for books. You just type in the ISBN and see if your required book is in the library, and have it sent to you for a small fee. The best part? You get to send it back at the end of the semester, and you don’t have to worry about whether you’ll get $2 for it or $10.

    Want to get help with your homework from someone at Harvard? Or in the UK? Get connected on Campus Bug and find someone working on a similar project. It’s an educational social network with the added bonus of meeting new-and potentially cool-people.

    Does the beginning of a new semester inspire you? Rather than spewing your life to strangers through a blog or Twitter, join Quillpill and use your inspiration to form the basis of your autobiography-140 characters at a time. Whether you’re writing fiction or the real thing, this story-telling microblog provides a fresh creative outlet in a sea of Twitter wannabes.
