Bookstore – Teaching Staff

Book Orders
Book orders are generated by course plans listed in Sharepoint. It is therefore essential to update course plans for us to order the appropriate resources.

Book Choice
It is recommended that the course book be used for all course sections. We recommend consensus between part-time and full-time instructors. Deans, in collaboration with program coordinators, will need to approve course materials to ensure consistency and facilitate student transfers from one campus to another.

Courses with Part-Time Professors
Several courses are taught by part-time instructors. When purchasing course materials, consider:

  1. the course history and/or
  2. the choice of full-time instructors / program coordinators

When a book is ordered for a class prior to the hiring of the instructor, the professor must understand that the book is then an integral part of the class. He or she must not discourage students from using that book. Because of book order return policy constraints and associated fees and to avoid general confusion among students, it is important for teaching staff members to follow this guideline.

Mandatory course material verification is done by instructors through online course plans. For coop book orders, the mandatory course material verification is completed by the following dates:

  • Summer Session: End of the full 3rd week of February
  • Fall Session: End of the full 3rd week of March
  • Winter Session: End of 1st full week of November

In order to ensure the timely delivery of course materials, it is important to complete the course material verification by these dates.
