The Bookstore needs Winter 2019 term textbook and course kit orders

The top priority for staff in the York University Bookstore is to contribute to student success by having course materials in stock before the first day of classes. As the Winter 2019 term is coming up, faculty and staff are asked to send textbook orders to the Bookstore by Oct. 10 and course kit requests by Oct. 20. Early course materials submissions allow Bookstore staff to provide the best service to faculty and students.

It is important to note that books from previous semesters are not normally retained. Notify staff of the fall requirements and we will either retain leftover books or reorder them. Books coming from overseas or the United States take longer to arrive, so it is even more important that we are contacted as soon as possible.

The York University Bookstore strives to become a leader in textbook affordability for students. By receiving your order early, staff are more likely to secure a larger number of used books, especially by buying back from York University students, and being able to include your books in the Bookstore’s growing rental program.

Textbook orders can be sent to the Bookstore buyers in person, via phone or email, or through the online ordering system accessed through the Faculty and Staff link available on the York University Bookstore website. For an online ordering password, faculty and staff can email orders@yorku.ca. The Bookstore pages are updated to assist faculty and staff, including a list of subjects bought by the buyer. The buyers are standing by and ready to help.
