In-Store Pickup and Residence Delivery
Due to high volume, in-store pickup and residence delivery for online orders, with the exception of print-on-demand custom course books,
is not available from August 26 - September 29.
We are proud to partner with faculty in sourcing digital and print course materials to support your students. Whether you have a book list prepared, have a list of readings and articles, or need support liaising with publishers, our Course Materials Services team is here to support you in preparing the materials needed for your courses.
Submit your list of book requests and our team will liaise with publishers to ensure they are available for your students. Multiple format options are available for books—including digital and print. Order your textbooks 90 days prior to term start to allow sufficient time for delivery.Learn More
If you have a list of chapters, articles, or readings, we can combine them into a custom course book to be added to your students’ personal book lists. Submit print or digital articles, along with a table of contents and bibliography, and we will make sure the book is organized in order and on time for the start of term.Learn More
If you are looking to include open educational resources in your course materials, we are here to provide access and incorporate them into each student's personal booklist. Speak with our team to learn what open educational resources are available, and to start integrating them into your course.Get in touch
