Barnes & Noble has just unveiled its latest creation, NOOKstudy. No, it's not a new e-book reader, but rather a software platform intended for students to help them manage digital study aids and electronic text books.

Rather than stuffing a bunch of old, hardcopy handouts and carrying around heavy books, a student could potentially organize everything he/she needs with one program. Potentially. (You'd also have to take the time to scan a lot of that stuff too if you don't already have a digital copy.)

Compatible with both Mac and Windows systems, users can also use the program to directly access all of B&N's eBooks and save up to 40% off new textbooks.

Best of all, the NOOKstudy application will be free...once it rolls out this fall in time for the new school year. No exact date yet, but most likely after Labor Day. If this sounds like something for you, submit your e-mail on the NOOKstudy site for more information about signing up.
