SERVICE UPDATE (COVID-19) | UPDATED APRIL 18, 2020: To ensure the health and safety of our staff and community, the Book Store at Western has closed retail operations for the time being. We continue offering online access to eBooks and digital course materials. ONLINE ORDERING IS AVAILABLE ONLY FOR PURCHASE OF eBOOKS .

Please check back for updates as the situation evolves. We thank you for your understanding and are proud to support the continued academic success of students.

Textbooks & Course Materials

We make it easy to get your course textbooks at The Book Store. Search your personal textbook list, find a wide selection of new and used books in store, and access your digital course content.

Digital Materials for Online Courses

All online courses will utilize e-textbook and digital materials that we’re proud to offer. To access your digital course materials for online summer and intersession courses, please follow the steps below:

  1. Log into your Student Services account to view your personal textbook list. Be sure to check back regularly before your summer or intersession course starts, as your textbook list could change as faculty continue in moving courses online.
  2. Purchase and receive your digital materials and/or eBook access codes within minutes on our eBook page.

If a digital resource is not available, we will provide the information needed in your booklist to access required course materials elsewhere.
