Book orders for Spring 2015 courses are due to Melanie (email@example.com) by Wednesday, November 5. Order form attached. Please read through for guidelines that help with order accuracy and obtaining desk copies.
Notes from staff:
-NOT ordering books? Using packets instead? Be sure to inform Melanie
-ISBN: Important! Include the ISBN to avoid receiving incorrect editions.
-DESK COPIES: Please only request desk copies of titles which you've
not previously received. If you've previously received a personal
desk copy of the same edition, one will not be requested for you
again. All TA's will have desk copies requested for them. Note that
publisher requests take weeks so timely submission of orders is very
helpful to you & your TA's. NOTE: Desk copies cannot be guaranteed
for faculty & instructors if the deadline for book orders is not met.
-Submitting book orders early gives the Bookstore the opportunity to
pay students the best price for their books during buy-back.
-If you delete or change books after they have shipped from the
publisher, your research account will be charged for return fees.
-If you will be using a book in the future, please indicate when that
will be. This helps students save money by allowing the Bookstore to
plan their used copy purchases.
