Following World War II, when the supply of new textbooks could not meet the demand created by returning ex-GI students, NBC began buying books back from students at the end of the term and reselling them as used, helping to develop a used textbook industry. NBC provides wholesale textbook distribution, retail technology and consulting services to approximately 2,500 bookstores.
In 2010 the company rebranded its retail operations as Neebo. Neebo.com was the company's online portal, offering college textbooks, textbook rentals, e-textbooks, and college-branded merchandise. The company emerged from bankruptcy in 2012. Follett acquired Neebo in 2015. Nebraska Book Company retained its wholesale textbook distribution and technology businesses. In 2018, Nebraska Book Company and Follett formed a strategic partnership for course material sourcing and distribution.
NBC and the Collegiate Retail Alliance merged their technology businesses in 2018. The merger introduced PrismRBS, a technology and software provider for campus-wide retail services.
