Notice to faculty and staff: York University Bookstore needs your Summer 2019 Term textbook and course kit orders

Having the course materials in stock before the first day of classes continues to be the top priority at the York University Bookstore. As Summer 2019 Term is coming up, please, submit your textbook and course kit requests as soon as you can. Early course materials submissions will allow Bookstore staff to provide the best service to you and to your students and everything received by March 22 will help them meet that goal.

It is important to note that books from previous semesters are not normally retained. If possible, notify Bookstore staff of the summer term requirements and they will either retain left over books or re-order them. Books coming from overseas or the United States take longer to arrive, so it is even more important that Bookstore staff hear from you as soon as possible.

The Bookstore strives to become a leader in textbook affordability for York University students. By receiving your order early, Bookstore staff members are more likely to secure a larger number of used books especially by buying back from York 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, email or through the online ordering system accessed through the Faculty & Staff link available on the York University Bookstore website. For an online ordering password, faculty and staff can email The Bookstore pages are updated to assist faculty and staff, including a list of subjects bought by buyer.
