Faculty plays a larger role than you might recognize in ensuring students are able to obtain the textbooks and materials they need at reasonable prices. The DVC Bookstore relies on you, the instructors and faculty, to submit textbook lists for your courses in a timely fashion each semester. Timely lists allow us to source the correct textbooks and obtain an appropriate supply of used textbooks. We all know that more used textbooks are exactly what students want! On the other hand, a delayed textbook list can result in inventory shortages, students unable to obtain required texts and a complete lack of quality used textbooks. Please do your part and submit your textbook lists as early as possible each semester. Your students will thank you!
If you need a desk/instructor copy, contact the publisher or publisher rep directly. Most major publishers provide the ability to order instructor materials online. If you need the contact info for the publisher, ask one of the book buyers in the bookstore. If you need a copy immediately and the bookstore has the book in stock; you can purchase a copy and get an extended refund period to tide you over until your desk copy arrives. Make sure you let the cashier know you are an instructor so they can notate on your receipt.
When filling out the request form, if you do not know the answer to one of the required fields, just enter 'unknown' or 'to be determined'. As long as there is something entered in the field, it will take your request. Thank you.
