The store strives to provide you with the best selection of required new and used textbooks in stock. Buying used textbooks saves you up to 25% off the publisher's list prices. We offer continuous year-round buyback of textbooks at our store. Here's virtually everything you ever wanted to know about textbooks.
Ways to get your textbooks
The store offers three ways to get your textbooks. One is to purchase online and have the books shipped to your home address or pick up at the store. The second way is to reserve your textbooks. By filling out a form early you can reserve your texts to get as many used texts as possible. This can save you money and time. Each semester we have designated pick up dates on reserved books prior to classes beginning. When reserving your texts, you choose a method of payment on the form. The third way of obtaining your textbooks is to shop at the store. The earlier you shop, reserve or buy online the better the selection of used books. Purchasing used books saves 25% over new books.
Textbooks are expensive, but they represent an outstanding value for the dollars spent. For every one dollar spent for a textbook the store keeps $0.25. This money is used to cover the overhead of operating the store, paying freight and paying for employee wages. Money spent at the university store also contributes to student scholarships, donations or campus expenses and improvements.
Why you should purchase your textbooks
Your professors carefully choose course materials that will best serve as a core source of information and compliment what is being presented in class. Your textbooks are 24-hour learning tools, giving you access to knowledge, insights and experience of the authors who are experts in their fields. By purchasing your textbooks, you are giving yourself powerful tools for academic success.
Your current edition textbooks are valuable and you can sell them back to the bookstore every day. However, finals week of each semester is the best time to sell your texts. If the text is ordered for use in the next semester, the store will usually pay 50% of the retail price until the quantity is reached for the enrollment demand. Once the demand is reached, we pay you the price the national market is currently paying for that title and ship the title to a national distributor.
Publishers issue new textbook editions quite frequently. When a new edition becomes available, old editions have little or no value.
Your books must be in good shape with bindings, covers and all pages intact. Water damage will cause you to get less or no value at all. Handling your books with care during the term will pay off at the end.
