Get your textbook orders in by the deadlines - this helps us plan our buy back quantities better, ultimately returning more money to your students. In addition, this helps us ensure we have sufficient used texts, saving students an average of 25% over the cost of new books.
Don't require new editions that have only minimal changes - if previous editions are still usable, they can be purchased as used texts.
Avoid customized texts - often, these texts can't be bought back and are rarely recycled.
Avoid texts bundled with additional materials, such as CD-ROMs, etc. - this forces students to purchase new texts at premium prices, even though bundled materials often go unused.
Avoid requiring texts in which only one or a few chapters are needed - this means fewer texts to buy for a particular course.
Please, take the time to submit your textbook requisitions as early as possible each term, for the benefit of your students.
Deadlines for submitting Textbook Requisitions to the UVM Bookstore are as follows:
Spring Term - October 15, Summer Term - March 30, Fall Term - April 1
