Benefits of Planning Ahead For Faculty

  • Peace of Mind – By submitting/approving your adoptions now, you have the peace of mind in knowing that they are taken care of for the whole year.  We will provide opportunities to double check your adoptions each term, but, unless you make a change, you won’t have to worry about it.
  • No Surprise Edition Changes – We’ve included the previously used text, whether it is a new edition and, in some cases, whether it is changing in the near future.  What you will see at the bottom of this email will be what we know at the present time.
  • Smoother Edition Change Transition – When we are aware of your textbook choices in advance, we have some control over managing the transition to a new edition.  If your text is changing editions mid-year, as they often do, and we know that you would like to complete the entire year with the same text, we are able to order sufficient quantities before they become unavailable.
  • Fewer Shortages of Your Text – For courses that are held multiple terms, we will often have multiple terms worth of books on hand.  For many of the courses, we will use your information to place orders for textbooks for the entire year.  Should there be large, unanticipated spikes in enrollment, we will already have additional stock on hand.
  • Compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) – The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 has a number of provisions related to textbooks.  One of those provisions requires any institution of higher education which receives Federal assistance to publish textbook ISBN information in the internet course schedule for the institution.  This legislation allows the information to be provided via a link to the Bookstore’s website – where we have been and will continue to post ISBN information.  By supplying your book information in advance, you can help ensure compliance.
