A note to faculty about Spring 2012 textbook orders

November 4, 2011

Spring 2012 textbook orders

Thanks to the many faculty members who have turned in textbook orders for the Spring 2012 semester. Although the new semester is still several months away, the CSU Bookstore has begun its preparations to ensure that a good selection of used textbooks is available to CSU students in the spring. Buying and selling used books are still the most effective ways to reduce the overall cost of textbooks for CSU students.

In addition to book buyback, which starts Dec. 7, the Bookstore is using alternative sources to find books at the lowest possible prices. Your early textbook orders not only help increase the amount of money students receive at buyback, early orders will also help the Bookstore find additional books at the lowest prices possible.

In addition to helping students, submitting your textbook orders on time is required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act. The purpose of the HEOA is to ensure that students have access to affordable course materials. To that end, the CSU Bookstore strives to provide information about required or recommended textbooks and supplemental materials for Spring classes, as soon as practicable.

The CSU Bookstore estimates there are still more than 3,000 outstanding orders for the Spring 2012 semester.

If you have not yet ordered your textbooks and you know what you will be using next semester, please contact Terry Clayton at 491-3544 or e-mail Terry at right away.

Thank you for your cooperation in this important effort.
