Bookstore Textbook Orders (F-4 )
Original Implementation: Unpublished
Last Revision: October 22, 2012
Every semester the textbook manager in the Barnes and Noble University Bookstore sends each academic department chair textbook information forms, instructions for completion, and a list of adopted books with new editions in print. Required textbooks are selected and optional books are recommended by each department chair for the following semester. Approximate due dates for departmental selections to be returned to the university bookstore are listed below.
- Fall semester - March 1
- Spring semester - October 10
- Summer semesters - March 1
Following internal checks of textbook inventories, buy-back quantities, and quantities sold in previous semesters, the bookstore places purchase orders with publishers. If problems arise during the purchasing process, the bookstore notifies the appropriate department chair and if necessary, new textbook selections are made.
