Submitting Course Materials Requisitions
Winter and Spring requisitions due
Summer and Fall requisitions due
Please keep in mind that the later you submit your order, the more difficult it will
be for our course material provider, Follett, to source and secure your course material
in time for the start of the semester. Timely submission helps the bookstore determine
the value of the books based on their being used in the next semester. This will guide
them as to the value of the books, and offer the students more at buy back time. Students
will save money if more used books are available. If you will be teaching a course
during the upcoming semester(s) and require books or supplies for your class(es),
please remember to submit your order as soon as possible.

We are streamlining the desk copy process and providing you with the following information
on how to order your own desk copy starting for the Spring 2019 semester. By ordering
your own desk copy, you can control the shipping address as well as deal with a publisher
one-on-one, making sure your desk copy arrives in a timely manner. Unfortunately the
Bookstore Liaison's Office will no longer be ordering desk copies on behalf of professors
starting Winter 2018.
You may order your desk copy in these four easy steps:
- Adopt your course material via the Follett Discover Tool.
- Once you have submitted the ISBN via the tool, Follett's system will give you more
information about the title of the book, including the name of the publisher.
- Go to the publisher's website, and find their contact information under the "Contact"
tab. You may call them directly if it is major publisher, or they will be able to
connect you to your own publisher representative. The publisher representative will
be able to order your desk copies whenever you need them.
- Make sure once you have reached out to the publisher you receive an order confirmation
as you will need that confirmation number to follow up with the publisher if you have
any questions regarding the desk copy. We hope you are enjoying the beginning of the
