Office Supplies

Although standard office supplies should be obtained through the State contract, there are many products for emergency needs and specialty office supply items available at the Bookstore. Items not stocked by the Bookstore can be ordered and are usually received within three to five days.

Desk Copies

Faculty members should obtain desk copies of textbooks by writing directly to the publisher in advance of the need for the text. Format request forms, as well as a directory of publishers, are available at the Bookstore.

Desk copies may be purchased from the Bookstore when time does not permit direct ordering from the publisher. In these cases, a copy should be ordered from the publisher and, when received, taken to the Bookstore for credit. Neither the department, nor the Bookstore, should bear the expense of desk copies.

Required Course Materials

Required course materials, other than textbooks, will be handled in the same manner as all other bookstore items. Faculty members must place orders for these items with the bookstore staff in sufficient time for the items to be ordered and received from suppliers, prior to the time needed in the classroom.
