Timesaving Tip Order your course materials online at www. bookstore. uwo. ca • When you submit an online order, you will get an automatic confirmation that your order was received. • You will also get an email listing the items that you have ordered for your records. • Please include your Administrative Assistant’s name on the online order form, so that he/she will have information about your adoption.
Textbook Adoptions Ordering takes time. • Each title requires significant time to check edition status, stock availability and on-hand inventory. • About 10, 000 unique book titles are ordered for each major semester.
Textbook Adoptions Why so early? • Each term 1000 s of campuses want the same course materials at the same time. You can determine who gets their books first by ordering early. • Students want to buy books early: during Student Academic Orientation, new students ask us for their booklists.
Textbook Adoptions How can we help students save money on textbooks? • Buyback – When you order early, you enable our students to sell their textbooks to The Book Store for use in the next term. • Used Books for Sale – Students buy used books and save 25% off the original price.
Price Matters Students care. • The Book Store at Western sells textbooks at the publisher’s suggested list price.
