A new type of social studies
But with increasing competition from scrappy start-ups like BookRenter.com, Chegg is now trying to get more of its customers’ attention. On Thursday, the company is unveiling a new Web site that in addition to rentals, helps students to select courses and to study.

The new services come from the integration of two start-ups that Chegg bought in the last year.
