Faculty Information

Did you know that by turning in your textbook requisitions on time:

  • You allow us time to work with wholesalers so that we can provide as many used copies for students as possible.
  • You're assured that your titles are included on the buyback list in May and August.
  • Your textbooks will be on the shelf one week before classes begin.
  • The bookstore can order early when publishers are well stocked with required titles.

Textbook Requisitions

Book requisitions are collected on a semester basis to allow enough time for the Bookstore to research book information, search for used books, order from publishers and receive inventory in the store in time for classes.  Any book not requested for the next semester is returned to the publisher.  You may submit requisitions to the Bookstore via our website.  All written book requisitions must be submitted to your department.  The division office within your department will forward the requisition to the Bookstore.  Following are due dates for textbook requisitions.  Please allow enough time for your department to process your request and get it to the Bookstore by the due date.

  • Fall Semester        April 15
  • Spring Semester    October 1
  • Summer                March 15

CHANGES:  If you need to make any changes in the materials ordered for your class, please submit these changes in writing to your department, or through the Bookstore website.

BOOK STATUS:  If a new edition comes out on a title you have selected, or there is an out-of-print or out-of-stock status, the Bookstore will inform you and/or the department of the status of that title via email.

DESK COPIES:  Your division will provide you with the form necessary to obtain a desk copy of your textbook.  The Bookstore is unable to order desk copies from publishers, but we can provide you with contact information.

CUSTOM TITLES AND PACKAGES:  Some faculty have chosen to use custom titles or packages put together by a publisher rep.  We are happy to place orders for these items.  Please be aware that it may take publishers 4-6 weeks to produce these bundles, and an additional 2 weeks for the shipment to reach the Bookstore.  It is important that requests for these items be submitted by the due date for each semester.  Any requisitions submitted after this date may be delayed.  Publishers allow only ten percent of custom titles to be returned.  If you are interested in using a custom title, be sure you notify the Bookstore before signing any contracts.

SUPPLIES: If you would like the Bookstore to stock supplies for your students, please contact Chris Wild at (714) 564-6889.  You may also submit this request along with your textbook requisition.
