SamenvattingThis thesis analyses download data obtained from one of the biggest online shadow library, LibGen. I only include textbooks in the analysed data. I research, whether price of the textbook or macro variables of different countries have effect on the number of downloads. I use regression analysis, using both OLS and hurdle
regressions. I find that prices either have no or negative effect on downloads. A higher GDP, internet penetration or number of enrolled students into tertiary education all significantly increase the chance of downloads.
