How are Faculty vital to Buyback?

Receiving book adoption forms early is an important part of the process. The earlier we have textbook adoption forms in hand, the more used copies of books we can obtain from students and used book wholesalers. It is one of the many reasons why we need your textbook adoption information months before the term begins.

How do I obtain desk copies and
teaching aids?

Obtaining desk copies is the responsibility of the instructor or department and you must contact the publisher or publisher representatives directly if you're interested in these items.
