 Help Your Students 
Submitting adoptions on time contributes to course material affordability by:   

·        Allowing your campus store time to source used and rental inventory, ensuring that your students have the most affordable options available for the first day of class.    

·        When adoptions are known before our end-of-term buyback event, we can pay your students top dollar for the materials they sell back and keep the affordable books circulating locally.   

·        Allowing us ample time to research your requested materials and determine whether they can be added to our national network list of rental titles, potentially lowering prices even more.   


Adopting Digital Content?    

When adopting digital, it is important that you confirm the exact ISBN with the publisher representative prior to submitting to the campus store. Please specify whether students should purchase the standalone eBook, courseware, and/or a digital bundle.  If a bundle is needed, also provide details on its components. With an increasing number of content providers adding digital options, it’s critical these are verified early in the adoption process.   

Ho to submit your book adoption form If you need a history book for your department, just send me an email. 

Please submit your course material needs via email, paper copy, attachment, in person, if no changes from last semester -Respond with no changes and the affected courses, or Follett Discover.   
 If your class does not require a text or you are using Open educational resources (OER) please submit an adoption request for "no materials required" OR OER materials. 

DESK COPIES: Publisher requires that you request desk copies directly through them. Please contact the bookstore if you need any publisher contact information.

We do anything possible to help pass along any savings to the students. You can help us achieve this by submitting your adoptions early. Together we can make a different that benefits everyone.
