Please inform your students that they have until the end of the 8th week of classes to buy the required or recommended texts and/or course manuals for their course(s). The stock-return process begins the 9th week of term.
- Course manuals (photocopied material) are not to be listed on the textbook requisition form; this is a separate process. See Part 2 below.
- Submit one requisition form per course listing total quantity needed for all sections; e.g., 240 for 6 sections.
- Submit as many requisitions as you have courses (not sections).
- On the requisition form, list titles in order of use during the term (if applicable).
- Checkmark the appropriate required or recommended box.
- If the ISBN number is known, please note it.
- If you need a specific format, translation, edition (US vs. Cdn), etc., please note it on the “info” line.
If you are ordering a shrink-wrap package configuration, please:
- List the individual titles + ISBNs in the package on the requisition form
- List the package ISBN and package price (as arranged between yourself and the publisher)
- Clearly inform your students that they are buying a package and not individual books
The Bookstore will order non-returnable texts if the department chairperson accepts financial responsibility for unsold stock. Before such a text is ordered, the Bookstore must receive a signed consent from the chairperson.
Alternate book choices should be considered in the event that there are difficulties such as reprints, delayed release dates, publisher merger problems, global unrest, weather conditions, trucking industry action, etc.
All submissions containing any amount of a printed work must comply with copyright law.
